March 1 to March 31
Event Resources-Links to lots of short stories, from classics to brand new works. Please consider joining us for the event. All you need to do is complete a post on any Irish Short Story and let me know about it. I will publicize your post and keep a master list. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
There is no sign up form, no Mr. Linky. Just let me know by emailing me or leaving a comment anywhere on my blog letting me know of your participation. Guest posts are very welcome, just contact me about your plans.
|This is my month-Carmilla|
My intention is to make it as easy as possible to participate. You can also post on a biography of an Irish writer, a history of the famine or pretty much any topic broadly related to the Irish short story.
|Carmilla, don't you|
mean this is our month?
|I only grace R. L once or|
twice a year with my presence-

What will happen during the event?
One of my goals this year is to read and post on a lot of new to me Irish writers. Another of my goals is to support as I can contemporary writers of short stories from Ireland, especially emerging writers. I will be posting some Q and A sessions with Irish writers which, I think, will help us understand from the inside what it is to be a writer, especially one from Ireland. I will be posting a lot during the event. Maybe as many as 150 posts plus guests posts so we might go over the 120 posts count. I have already written 80 posts for the event.
Some of my posts will attempt to go deeper into things than others. it partially depends on my state of mind when I write it and also on how the story I read impacts me. I resist the term "book reviewer" and do not like to be called that! I read things and I write posts on them.
If you are an Irish writer and want me to feature your work, please contact me. I am also very willing to post or repost short stories by Irish authors, with them retaining full ownership of their works.
My objective is to end the month knowing more about the Irish short story than I do at
the start. My co-hosts will be along for the ride.
