The Shine/Strong Award is presented annually to the author of the best first collection of poems published by an Irish poet in the previous year. The Award will be presented on Sunday 14th September 2014.


Music Field (Poetry Salzburg) has been described as 'a brave and successful opening out of music through poetry... which draws the reader in with its precise detail of the musician's world.' The writing of the book has been supported by bursaries from the Arts Department of Wexford County Council, ArtLinks and the Arts Council. 


After graduating in Music and English from University College Dublin, Jim Maguire worked in journalism, writing mainly about the arts. He completed an M.Phil in Creative Writing at Trinity College Dublin in 1999. For many years he lived in Korea, the setting for his collection of short stories Quiet People (Lapwing, 2008). His poems have won several awards and prizes, including the Brendan Kennelly Award, the RTE/Rattlebag Poetry Slam, The Dromineer Poetry Prize and the Strokestown International Poetry Prize. He was the recipient of an Arts Council of Ireland Literature Bursary in 2010. His occasional work for radio includes a documentary on the letters of Leos Janacek for Lyric FM. His debut collection Music Field was published by Poetry Salzburg.
