This week we can again offer a colourful collection of presentations, as well as a wide range of authors. Novel genres include the ‘Report on Historical Fiction’ by Mary Rose Toibin, and the ‘Classic Story Review’ by Frank Fahy. Both Mary Rose and Frank are experienced and perceptive writers and critics; we look forward to their contributions. With four short stories, a chapter from Seamus Keogh’s exciting Novella, and Michael O’Dowd’s non-fiction text, prose will dominate the evening. All the more welcome will be Celia Scully’s poem with its enticing title!
MOTM: the new keywords are BRUSH and SWEEP; the deadline for entries is February 20. With the springcleaning season just round the corner, now is the time to unleash your inspiration!
