MOLLY KEANE AWARD


The Molly Keane Memorial Creative Writing Award, organised by the Arts Office of Waterford County Council, is closing on the 25th March. This is one of the very few awards named for one of our women writers. When I am filthy rich I intend to set one up for one of my own favourites. I hope I get rich soon so the dear woman can live to see it...

This comp is for a previously unpublished short story up to 2000 words.

Fee: no entry fee - woo!

Prize: €650 will be awarded to the winner at a special ceremony during the IMMRAMA Literary Festival in Lismore, Co. Waterford (June 10th – 13th 2010).

Deadline: 5pm, Thursday 25th March 2010.  

Full details and an entry form on the Waterford Co Co site here.
