FRIDA STRIKES AGAIN


From The Dublin Review of Books:

"The Dublin Review of Books is pleased to announce the winners of its 2011 Flash Fiction Competition. First prize goes to Nuala Ní Chonchúir for her story “The Egg Pyramid”. Second is Percy Herbert with “Daisy” and third Eunice Yeates with “May”. The winner will receive €1,000 and the second and third €100 each. The winning entries will be published shortly with the autumn issue of the drb. "

Woo! I'm delighted because a) I love flash fiction b) I need the dosh! c) my story is about Frida Kahlo and this is the second time she has come good for me (last year in The Black Diamond comp my Kahlo poem came second). Muchas gracias, Frida. Thanks also to judges Éilís Ní Dhuibhne and James Ryan. And congrats to my fellow winners. Glow :)

Oh well done Nuala. I'd never heard of Frida before Castlecomer last year. Was she in Ballinasloe again?
