Over the Edge New Writer of the Year

The shortlist has been announced for the Over the Edge New Writer of the Year in Galway. I made the longlist but sadly not the shortlist even though the shortlist has 40 writers on it. Ah well! Fellow Boyne Writer, Evan Costigan, did make the list, well done! Evan made the short list last year as well.

The winners in the fiction and poetry categories will be announced at the September 'Over The Edge: Open Reading' in Galway City Library on Thursday, September 30th (6.30-8pm).

Waiting for results of the Poet of Fingal Competition (next week), the Dromineer Festival competition and the Castlecomer Poetry Competition. Not that I'm expecting to get anywhere in any of these. No way! I just enter a few competitions now and then for the fun of it. Really.

Yes, Michael, I enter for the fun of it too (he said, through gritted teeth) Please pass my congratulations on to Evan - is there something in the water up there in Trim?
