CADENZA FINALS SOON. THEN A WEEK IN IRELAND

Timely, then.

Concentrating on reading the Cadenza shortlisted stories yesterday and again today. I will have my proposed 1/2/3 and a few commendeds sorted by this evening. Ready to discuss with Zoe, the editor.

The bliss...tomorrow packing, then:

A whole week in Bantry at the West Cork Literary Festival, where I'm beetling about all over the place, being useful. (I hope!)

I'm reading Michael Logan's wonderful One Page Story at the Fish Publishing Awards Ceremony. (He won e1000... it's terrific.)

I'm organising a flash competition which runs all week, in which writers submit the next 100 words each day to a story entitled Multi Storey.

Reading myself on Thursday 10th at Bantry Bookshop.

So exciting! I have deliberately kept all of Monday free (until 4pm at the hotel) so I can wander around Bantry and soak up the atmosphere and revel in the headspace. Such luxury!

Indeed. Blissful. Freedom.

Best of luck in Cork, V. Sorry I won't make it. Festival season is truly in progress and I have a different one to attend.
Enjoy!

And you enjoy yours, N... I'm looking forward so much to meeting you in September at the Frank O'Connor.
