Sara Berkeley

Poet, Writer


BREAKING NEWS! The Last Cold Day wins inaugural Yeats Poetry Prize co-funded by the Yeats Society Sligo and the Irish Independent newspaper.

New Release

Some of the Things I've Seen 

In her newest collection, Sara Berkeley follows a number of sightlines: watching the landscape from the window of a plane, contemplating the effects of climate change, and witnessing human vulnerability and resilience in her work as a hospice nurse during the height of the pandemic.

Throughout these poems, Berkeley maintains a tender awareness of the threats that surround us, especially for the children born into this increasingly uninhabitable world, as well as a keen appreciation of the passion and poetic insight we will all need to survive.
