SOUTHWORD 19 ONLINE

Photo by John Minihan

Southword 19 is now online and the winners of the Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Award, as chosen by Tania Hershman, can be read there. There are new poems from the brilliant Tess Gallagher, Vona Groarke and Billy Collins; Matthew Sweeney reviews Thomas Lynch; Jennifer Matthews reviews Dave Lordan; Gerry Murphy is also in review etc. etc.

John Minihan is the Frank O'Connor festival's official photographer each year and there are photos aplenty form this year's events in Southword. The pic above is of me and a terrified looking Juno, with Finbar, my husband. What a privilege to be photographed by John again. Get yourself to the festival next year - it's in my top two, vying for pole position with Cúirt.

What a lovely photo, that's one to be framed for sure.
By the wat, I started reading some of the stories from "Nude", very enjoyable so far but the Dutch landscape is not boring! We just get to see a lot more clouds and sky is all ;-)

Of course, I have a hard time distinguishing fiction from fact ;-)

Umm, I don't think I look lovely! And no sign of the portrait he took of me... I DID break his camera :)
