Sue Rainsford is a writer & researcher based in Dublin.
Her practice is concerned with hybrid, lyric and embodied texts, explicit fusions of critical and corporeal enquiry, as well as with experiences that alter our understanding of flesh.
A graduate of Trinity College and IADT, in January 2017 she completed her MFA in Writing & Literature at Bennington College, Vermont. She is editor of the limited edition publication some mark made, recipient of the VAI/DCC Critical Writing Award 2016/17, and the Arts Council Literature Bursary Award 2013 and 2018.
She is a blogger for Ploughshares at Emerson College, Boston, a writer-in-residence at Roscommon Arts Centre (2018-19), and was a judge for the 2018 Zurich Portrait Prize.
Her debut novel, Follow Me To Ground, is available from New Island Books and was recently shortlisted for the Kate O’Brien Award and longlisted for the Republic of Consciousness Award. She is an incoming fellow at The MacDowell Colony, New Hampshire, and is represented by Lucy Luck at C&W Agency, London.
