Unfortunately Ireland is still a country where teachers, doctors and members of the armed forces (to name a very small few) still feel very uncomfortable coming out as gay*. Many folks, especially of my generation and older are still convinced they’d be better off in the closet. THANKFULLY THIS IS NOT THE CASE FOR EVERYONE. The Gay Pride Parade is a fun, bright, happy way of showing that living in the dark isolation of a lie is not the only way to spend your short time on earth. The 10th(?) annual LGBTQ Pride Parade is on in Dublin this Saturday, and it’s great craic altogether. So come along all ye loud and proud LGBTQ folks, all the friends and allies come along too. Have some fun. Make some noise. Be happy🙂
- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
[NOTE: I get many requests to read and comment on manuscripts, which I have to regretfully decline. However I do occasionally work as a consultant for The Inkwell Group If I am accepting MS's at the time and you ask for me by name, they will pass your work on to me.
