The Lonely Voice: Short Story Introductions - February Readers Announced!

We are delighted to announce our four featured readers for the February round of The Lonely Voice: Short Story Introductions, as chosen by our judge this month, Catherine Phil MacCarthy. They are David Murray, Megan Stack, Monica Strina, and Susan O’ Keeffe.

Megan has always had a passion for the written word, whether writing, editing or reading. After many false starts over the years she has started writing short fiction recently and finds this medium a great creative outlet. Megan is originally from Chicago. She lives in Greystones and works in a public relations consultancy in Dublin.

Monica was born in Cagliari, Sardinia, in 1978. She wrote in Italian until she moved to Ireland in 2000, when she won an Erasmus scholarship for UCD. She holds a Degree in Foreign Languages and Literature and completed a Master of Philosophy in Creative Writing in Trinity College Dublin. She is currently working on a novel, and a collection of stories set in Sardinia.

David is a secondary school teacher. He has completed an Advanced Creative Writing course in the Irish Writers’ Centre.

Susan lives in Co. Sligo with her husband, three children, two dogs, two cats, four hens, one duck and one guinea pig. She enjoys walking, beautiful Sligo scenery, reading and the odd glass of red wine. She wishes there were more hours in the day to spend writing.

The reading takes place on Wednesday February 24th at 7pm. It is free and open to all, so do come along for what promises to be a great night of fiction.
