PRESIDENTIAL GIVEAWAY - SHINE ON


In honour of our wonderful new President, Michael D. Higgins, I am giving away a copy of the new Shine On: Irish Writers for Shine anthology which contains a poem by the very man. Also a story by me and fabulous work by lots of other Irish writers. I blogged its launch here.

In the spirit of patriotism, I am confining this giveaway to Ireland. Sorry, my lovely overseas readers - I will do a giveaway of the new poetry book next month which will be for everywhere :)

Just leave a comment to say you want to be in the draw and I will pull a name out of the hat next Friday, the 4th November. Good luck!

Brilliant. It's good to have a poet for a president, says a lot about the country.

Nice one, Mari - yes, next time we need a good woman writer as president :)

No, it's ok Nuala. I'll wait till we get the vote for the diaspora. ;). Thanks for the offer though, you're a kind person.

You know what, Ossian - you are in the draw. Diaspora rules!

What an honour, to have a poet for a president.

WOMEN RULE WRITER said...

It is indeed, P.M. We are very proud of him - he is a decent man, a good statesperson and a culture fiend to boot :)
