Leave Us Some Unreality

The anthology 'Leave Us Some Unreality' was launched last week by Carlo Gebler. It showcases the work of thirteen writers currently studying at the Oscar Wilde Centre at Trinity College Dublin.

I've met at least two of the writers. David Rowell won the Swift Satire Competition last year and read his piece at the festival. Eleanor Hooker is a founding member of the Dromineer Literary Festival, Co Tipperary and I met her when I was a prizewinner at the festival two, or was it three, years ago.

These M. Phil in Creative Writing students represent a diverse group, coming from Ireland, the United States and Canada. An anthology consisting of both prose and poetry, Leave Us Some Unreality contains the highlights of these authors’ work to date.

The anthology is available, price € 11.99, from most bookshops.
