David’s second collection, Santiago Sketches, was published by Salmon Poetry on 25th July 2017. Sign Tongue, his rendering of the work of Chilean poet Enrique Winter, won the 2014 Goodmorning Menagerie Chapbook-in-Translation prize. David is also a contributor to Suns, a pamphlet/chapbook of translations of Winter’s poems (Cardboard House Press, 2017), and the author of The Magic Door, an early chapbook (Blue Canary Press, Milwaukee, 1993). David received first-class honours from University College, Dublin for his research MA in modern Spanish literature, and holds an MFA in Poetry from New York University, where he was a Teaching Fellow. He received a major Literature Bursary from The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon in 2006 and was the Howard Nemerov Scholar at the 2011 Sewanee Writers’ Conference. Most recently, he was a prize-winning finalist for the 2015 Ballymaloe International Poetry Prize, judged by Billy Collins. He has taught at University College, Dublin, NYU and Coler-Goldwater Specialty Hospital, and served as Resident Writer at Hunts Point Alliance for Children in the South Bronx. David lives with his wife in Brooklyn, NY, where in June 2016 they ended a three-year run as the founders and hosts of The Eagle and the Wren reading series, where they hosted almost 150 writers, pairing Pulitzer-Prize winners and Guggenheim Fellows with exciting emerging writers and poets.
