Over the Edge Longlist

The longlist has been announced for the Over the Edge New Writer of the Year and is available on the website. It is a long list, 83 of the 341 writers who entered are included, roughly one quarter. I'm delighted to be on the list. Boyne Writers Group have two on the list, Evan Costigan is also there. Both of us have been long listed before and I think Evan also made the short list one year.

I notice Jane Clarke who won the iYeats Poetry competition on the list and also one or two who are appearing in the next Boyne Berries.

Not long to wait for the announcement of the short list. This happens at the August 'Over The Edge: Open Reading' in Galway City Library on Thursday, August 26th (6.30-8pm). Finally the winners will be announced at the September 'Over The Edge: Open Reading' in Galway City Library on Thursday, September 30th (6.30-8pm)
