If you are an Irish author and would like to be featured, please contact me.   There are several options open.

If you would like to do a guest post on my blog on anything related to Irish short stories, contact me.

Anne Enright is one of Ireland's leading writers, having won the Booker Prize in 2007 for her novel, The Gathering.  I have posted on a short story by Enright  during each of the last two Irish Short Story Months.  

Did you ever wonder why supposedly happily married couples place ads in publications like Craig's List looking for other couples to have sex with are like?  "Revenge", told from the point of view of the wife, is one woman's answer to that question.  I read the story in this very good anthology.
