Associate Director of Creative Writing, Mary Morrissy – http://marymorrissy.com – will be the guest at this month’s Fiction at the Friary this coming Sunday, November 25. https://www.facebook.com/FictionattheFriary/. This will be an occasion with a strong UCC flavour.
Fiction at the Friary is a free monthly event which features a guest reading, open mic and a writing component for those interested in flexing their muscles. It’s the brainchild of Madeleine D’Arcy, – https://www.madeleinedarcy.com/ – author of Waiting for the Bullet, a collection of short stories, and an alumna of the inaugural MA in Creative Writing in 2013, and Danielle McLaughlin, who’s our current UCC Writer in Residence.
Danielle’s debut was Dinosaurs on other Planets, and her short fiction has been published widely. She is the editor of the just published Counterparts, from Stinging Fly Press, a compendium of fiction by legal eagles, with all proceeds going to the Peter McVerry Trust. – https://stingingfly.org/books/counterparts/
