Event: ‘Putting it Write’ at the Bray Literary Festival

I’m really looking forward to taking part in the ‘Putting it Write’ strand of the Bray Literary Festival, where I’ll be chatting with Rebecca O’Connor and Rob Doyle about all things writing- and editing-related. Rebecca is a poet, novelist and editor; Rob is a novelist, editor and short story writer; I’ve written novels and edited short story and essay collections.
  I’m currently up to my oxters in copy edits on THE LAMMISTERS, which will be published by No Alibis Press in November (more of which anon), so I’ll be the one blinking in dazed and gormless fashion as I gaze around in awe at the wonderful sight of anywhere that isn’t my dimly lit garret.
  ‘Putting it Write’ takes place at 11.30am on Sunday, September 29th, at Bray Town Hall. For all the details, clickety-click here
