Announcing the winners of the 2013 Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Competition
Unfortunately It wasn't me but I have learned a lot from writing the story that I entered. Which in essence, was perhaps entered too soon considering the fact that I wasn't really happy with the ending. This I have now rewritten several times and whilst still not 100% happy; fundamentally I like the story. I can also see how my writing has progressed and is certainly improving. They do say (I don't know where) there are no bad writers only bad editors. Anyway the deserving winner and runner up of the Seán Ó Faoláin are as follows.
1st Prize Molia Dumbleton --Illinois, USA 'The Way We Carried Ourselves'
2nd Prize Danielle McLaughlin --Co Cork, Ireland 'The Others'
