The Lonely Voice: Short Story Introductions

I recieved an email earlier informing me that one of my short stories, Safa, has been selected as one of four winners of The Lonely Voice June 2011.  The judge is Leo Cullen and I will read my story on Wednesday, 6th July, in the Irish Writers' Centre.  I'm very proud and especially as this is a story I really wanted to tell and I spent hours in the library making it work one evening before coming home and spending more hours typing it up.

The Lonely Voice: Short Story Introductions take place on the last Wednesday of every month. Up to four short story writers are selected and invited to read their work at the event.  The Lonely Voice are particularly interested in providing a platform for emerging writers, who previously may not have had the opportunity to read their work in public.
