Christodoulos Makris is "one of Ireland's leading contemporary explorers of experimental poetics" (The RTÉ Poetry Programme). He has published three books of poetry, most recently this is no longer entertainment (Manchester: Dostoyevsky Wannabe, 2019), as well as several pamphlets, artists' books and other poetry objects. His second book The Architecture of Chance (Dublin: Wurm Press, 2015) was a poetry book of the year for RTÉ Arena and 3:AM Magazine. One of Poetry Ireland's 'Rising Generation' poets, he has presented his work widely across media and borders, and received awards and commissions from several institutions including the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), StAnza Festival (Scotland), European Poetry Festival, Culture Ireland, and Maynooth University. He is the poetry editor at gorse journal and associated imprint Gorse Editions. "In work that is at times radically experimental, and always alert to the capacity of language to remake the world, Christodoulos Makris seeks ways to break open the lyric space of the poem to alter the ways in which language operates in the public realm" (Lucy Collins, Irish University Review).
