SOUTHWORD SUMMER 2013 - ONLINE NOW
The new issue of Southword is now online. The incomparable Ted Deppe is there with a poem called 'An Art Critic and the Colour Yellow' and also Nell Regan with a beautiful poem, 'Gifted'. There's a story full of smoky 1970s images from Switzerland-based Irish writer Pádraig Rooney called 'The Tin Tabernacle'.
There is poetry in Irish, an essay about a carjacking by Paula Cunningham and reviews of two recent books by Cork-born writers Dave Lordan (short stories) and Theo Dorgan's début novel Making Way.
I have a flash in there called 'The Road That Mills and Boon® Built' which is based on an anecdote told to me at Cúirt 2012 by a lovely young Irish woman who lives in London called Isolde Roche - thanks for the inspiration, girl.
