Tyler Farrell leads the Poetry Hour with this year’s theme The Poetry of Northern Ireland. The Poetry Contest winner will be announced, the winning poem read, and of course, Tyler will continue the tradition of reading some of James Liddy’s poetry. Tyler Farrell is Associate Professor of English at Marquette University where he teaches, Creative Writing, Poetry and Irish Literature and also leads two study abroad programs to Ireland in the summer and London in January every year. He has published three books of poetry with Salmon and helped edit and write an essay for James Liddy's Selected Poems (Arlen House, 2011). Current projects include a new book of poetry coming out in autumn titled Milwaukee Liddy Hagiography and forthcoming projects involving the selected letters and ephemera of James Liddy.
