Polina Cosgrave is a Russian-born writer and poet based in Ireland. Her debut collection ‘My Name Is’ was published by Dedalus Press, one of Ireland’s leading poetry publishers.
She is featured in the Forward Prizes Book of Poetry 2022, an anthology curated by the judges of the most prestigious poetry prize in Ireland and the UK.
Polina was a recipient of Arts Council Ireland Literature Bursary Award for 2021.
Her work appeared in a number of journals and anthologies, including Local Wonders (Dedalus Press, 2021) and Writing Home: New Irish Poets (Dedalus Press, 2019). She is now working on her second anthology. Polina keeps fit doing pole fitness, and we really like this combination of vaulting and the delicacy of her verse.
