Prizewinner at Sean O'Faolain Short Story Competition
I'm seriously pleased at getting a runner-up prize in the Sean O'Faolain competition: http://www.munsterlit.ie/SOF%20Page.html
In previous years a few writers I really admire had got onto the shortlists, so I'm really happy to have scraped into the prizes, particularly as it seems to have been a bumper year for them in terms of entries.
I really thought the story I'd sent was a long shot, but it just goes to show - you just can't predict these things.
