Kimberly Campanello

Kimberly Campanello’s most recent project, MOTHERBABYHOME, a 796-page poetry-object and reader’s edition book comprising conceptual and visual poetry on the St Mary’s Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, Ireland, was published in April 2019 by zimZalla. She was recently awarded a residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris and a Markievicz Bursary from Ireland’s Arts Council and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht for (S)worn State(s), a poetry collaboration with Dimitra Xidous and Annemarie Ní Churreáin. In March 2020, she represented the UK in Munich at Klang Farben Text: Visual Poetry for the 21st Century, a three-day visual poetry festival inspired by the international concrete poetry movement of the 1950s and 60s. New poems are forthcoming in The White Review and The London Magazine. Kimberly is Programme Leader for the BA English Literature with Creative Writing and supervises postgraduate researchers in poetry and Creative Writing.
