La Belle Et La Bete
The Irish Independent have published their second issue of 'Hennessy Irish Writing Today'.
Edited by Ciaran Carty and Dermot Bolger, the magazine features 14 contributors, including seven short story writers and five poets, and I'm thrilled, honored and mildly hysterical to be one of them, though you wouldn't know it to look at me! (below) It also has fascinating interviews with the publishers of The SHOp, and of Pillar Press.
I've two poems in the magazine- The Beast, a piece inspired by Jean Cocteau's 1946 film La Belle et la Bete, (but my 'Beauty' much prefers her old Beast to the new handsome prince) and 'I Was Swallowed By A Harry Clarke Window.' (which is a true story...honest)
