Necessary Fiction – March is Irish Month

March 3, 2011

Ethel Rohan is writer-in-residence for March on the Necessary Fiction webjournal. For her residency she has chosen to showcase Irish writers and I feel very priviledged to be chosen amongst the impressive company of writers she has selected.
Check out Ethel’s introduction here.

Ethel is a very talented and widely-published writer. Her collection Cut Through The Bone, published by Dark Sky Books, is brilliant stuff – you have to read her story On the Loose!

Ethel also has a new collection, Hard to Say, coming out this May, published by the very stylish PANK.

    Well done David, and well deserved. By the way I am holding off on posting the book club review until I get a problem with images thumbnails on my blog resolved.

    Thanks Louise, hope you are well. To be honest, my piece is just a little flash piece, but it is nice to be part of it.

    Am looking forward to seeing the book club comments when they appear – that is a weird thing (to a technophobe like myself) with the images on your blog. Hope it gets sorted soon.

    Hi Niamh, thanks for that. Hope you are feeling well and enjoying life in Cork!

    If you’re down in Dublin this weekend I was thinking of going to Quantum Sofa – you friend is hosting it!

    Thanks for the kind words, David. I’m so glad you enjoyed Cut Through the Bone. “On the Loose” is one of my favorites from the collection and was originally published in PANK.

    I’m delighted to have your work in my Necessary Fiction issue. Cheers.
