Dr Frank Sewell's PhD research into the poetry of Máirtín Ó Direáin, Seán Ó Ríordáin, Cathal Ó Searcaigh and Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill was published as a monograph by Oxford University Press: Modern Irish Poetry: A New Alhambra (Oxford: OUP, 2000).

Since then he has continued to write chapters and essays on the 'dual tradition' of twentieth-century Irish poetry in both English and Irish, including studies of work by Gabriel Rosenstock and Ciaran Carson.

Other publications include translations of Irish poetry and short stories, Japanese poetry, and also original poetry. In addition Frank has edited several anthologies of contemporary writing.
