I’m delighted to see I’ve been shortlisted for this year’s William Trevor/Elizabeth Bowen International Short Story Competition.

I attended the Trocaire/Poetry Ireland Poetry competition ceremony yesterday in the National Library. It was a really nice experience as there were multiple age categories and wonderful readings from all age groups. Geraldine Mitchell took first prize in her category with her lovely poem Basso Continuo (remembering the cellist Vedan Smailovic), and I was very pleased to take second prize with a poem called The Same Sky’s Roof.

I have a piece in the latest edition of The Prose-Poem Project.
