The Irish Writers Centre have recently announced their support for 52 writers in the form of bursaries to attend a development course at the IWC between now and next summer. I am delighted to be one of these writers and to have the opportunity to undertake funded professional development at one of the leading institutions for writers on the island.
Thanks so much to Arts Council NI for the SIAP funding - last year I was longlisted by the Community Arts Partnership for the Seamus Heaney Award for New Writing for a poem about Kathleen Bridle, an artist from the ill fated Ulster Unit of 1934.
I have a flash piece in new issue of The Honest Ulsterman today, commemorating 50 years since 1969 - half a century of our worst demons writ large.
Absolutely delighted to have won the 2019 TU Short Story Competition, judged by June Caldwell, at Red Line Book Festival, Dublin with my story 'You Can See That She is Crying'. All shortlisted stories will be published in an anthology entitled Infinite Possibilities which will be published later this year. Very grateful to the organisers and to June for this award and really looking forward to the chance to read the anthology when it is finished.
