I’m very excited to share with you this great news: Greywood Arts, in Killeagh, Ireland, awarded me with its Winter Writing Residency for play-writing. Only one winner was chosen in each category – short stories, poems, plays – and I was selected based on the play I submitted – “The Last Bastion.”
On their blog, they write:
“It was a tremendously difficult decision to select only one work from each category – short stories, poems, and plays. It was truly a pleasure to read work by a diverse and talented pool of writers. We look forward to making the writing competition a regular opportunity to win a week-long residency.
We offer a hearty congratulations and warm welcome to:
Gráinne Daly for her poems To Lady and to Tramp, Tomb Raiders, & Slievemore Cemetary
Orla McAlinden for her short story A Sliver of the Moon
Mark W. Sasse for his play The Last Bastion
Can you tell I’m super excited? I’ll be heading to southwest Ireland on March 30 and will be working on three play-writing projects until April 7.
I want to thank Greywood Arts for this fantastic opportunity. Please head on over to their blog and read about the good work they are doing. You can also read about the three winners, including myself.
