New Irish Writers Short Story event

"Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds" (Neil Gaiman) ... find out more at our short stories panel discussion with Hennessy Literary Award authors Niamh Boyce, Michael O'Higgins, Maire T. Robinson with Ferdia Mac Anna

There are some tickets left for this event -actually it would make a great night out for a writing group. The panel is made up short story writers published in the recent Hennessy Book of Irish fiction. The Hennessy Award helped launch the literary careers of writers such as Joseph O Connor, Colum McCann,  Neil Jordan, Pat McCabe, Frank Mc Guinness, Anne Enright, Deirdre Madden, and Sara Baume... so, not bad :) 

The Short Story - Friday at 8.15 at The Civic Theatre Tallaght.
