Postgraduate Creative Writing Menu
I live and write in County Mayo in the west of Ireland. I completed an MA in Creative Writing at Lancaster (part-time, distance learning,) in 2008 which I thoroughly enjoyed and I’m delighted to have been accepted onto the PhD programme.
I write poetry, drama and prose. My debut poetry collection Are you ready? was published by Salmon in summer 2009. I have had many stories, poems and other pieces published in magazines and collections over the past few years.
My PhD project is a novel set in a present day rundown monastery in an affluent part of Dublin where nine ageing nuns pray all day. One nun wants to gain control of the community and build a new monastery and build-up the order. Along the way she meets many obstacles. I’m looking forward to working with all of you as well as with my supervisor, Jo Baker, on the project.
The distance learning MA worked extremely well for me. The online conferences and the summer-school were some of the best experiences of my life. I’m hoping this forum will match my past experience of Lancaster. I’ll give it my best shot at any rate.
