‘Big Man’ shortlisted for Irish Times Theatre Award

I’m delighted that Big Man has been shortlisted for the audience choice prize at The Irish Times Theatre Awards. This one-man-show up against all those big productions with massive budgets from the best theatres and companies in the country.

I’m also over-the-moon that James McFettridge has been shortlisted for Best Lighting.

Thanks to all the team!

I’m over-the-moon to be shortlisted for the Irish Short Story of the Year Award at the Irish Book Awards.

The shortlist is made up of 6 Irish authors who have been nominated by the editor of the magazine/publication that printed their story – mine was Numero Cinq in the USA.

I am the only male author and the only Northern Irish author on the shortlist. I’m proud to be representing Northern Ireland especially after news yesterday of my ACE funding from Arts Council NI.

The winner is chosen by the public and if you’ve read my story and want my story to win you can vote here. 🙂

If you haven’t read my shortlisted short story ‘Hollow’ you can read it along with all the other shortlisted stories over at Writing.ie who sponsor the award.

Wish me luck!
