The official announcement of the Hennessy XO shortlist has been made! My short story Bog Body was published in the Sunday Tribune last August and I’ve been put forward for the Emerging Fiction Award. The award announcements will be made on April 20th in Trinity College. It’s a thrilling feeling to be involved in this event for the first time, wonderful to get my head above water and appear on the literary scene from out of my domestic hideaway. I look forward to meeting the other nominees. The full list of nominations for the Emerging Fiction, First Fiction and Poetry Awards is below.
