Ann Joyce was born in Co. Mayo, later moving to Boyle, Co. Roscommon where she was a founding member of the Moylurg Writers group. Her poetry has been widely published in literary journals and she was short-listed for the Sunday Tribune / Hennessy Literary Award for poetry as well as being selected as a participant in the 2002 Dublin Writers Festival / Rattlebag Poetry Slam. She took part in the Poetry Ireland Introductions readings series in 2004 and in the lunch-time poetry reading series at the Yeats Summer School in 2002. Living as she does in the area between Knocknarea and Benbulben in the north-west of Ireland, it is perhaps not surprising that Ann Joyce has an ongoing interest in Celtic mythology which is reflected in the subject matter of many of the poems in her debut collection, Watching for Signs (2005).
