Lonely Voice Reading

The winners of the Lonely Voice short-story competition in March – Brian Kirk, Mark Kilroy, Tony Devlin and Pat O’Connor – read their stories at the Irish Writers’ Centre on Wednesday 31st March.

This month’s judge and acclaimed short-story writer Anthony Glavin gave an introduction to the winning stories and talked about the difficulties that short-story writers have to face when trying to publish their work. He highlighted how the Lonely Voice is a great opportunity for emerging writers to get their stories heard.

The winners came not only from Dublin, but from all over the country. Four outstanding short-stories and a glass or two of French red wine made for a very enjoyable evening and we are all looking forward to the next reading on Wednesday 28th April.

The Lonely Voice is a monthly competition, for more information on our submission guidelines see our website: http://www.writerscentre.ie
