These would make the ideal Christmas gift for anybody who has a love of Irish literature or even their own fond rock and roll memories!

All you have to do to be in with a chance to win a signed copy is fulfil one of the following tasks:

  • Follow us on Facebook and share any of our posts on the competition

OR

  • Follow us on Twitter and retweet any of our tweets about the competition

We’ll announce the winners when we close our call for submission in a couple of weeks.

Good luck and don’t forget to get your poetry, prose or fiction submissions to us asap!

See below for just a tiny taster of the critical praise heaped on ‘The Thrill of it All’!

“O’Connor writes with such passion, such precision, such beautiful sentences, with such an ear for language and with such knowledge and hilarity that this book could only come from an extremely gifted Rock’n’Roll obsessive. A BRILLIANT AND VITAL DOCUMENT.”

BOB GELDOF

“A valentine to that endangered species, the rock and roll band, and a homage to the magic produced by humans playing music in a room.”

IRISH TIMES

“Completely amazing. So funny you have to put it down to laugh. Then very moving.”

JOHN BOYNE, AUTHOR OF THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS.

“Evocative and vibrant, poignant and witty”

PRESS ASSOCIATION

“A brilliantly conceived and touching novel.”

SUNDAY MIRROR

“Exuberantly funny”

IRISH INDEPENDENT

“This book is a must.”

Daily Express

Flash Fiction Wanted

flash-fictionDon’t forget that our editors here at The Ogham Stone are interested in all types of great writing, and they know that sometimes the best things come in the smallest packages.

Made famous by Ernest Hemingway’s short-short story ‘For sale: Baby shoes, never worn’, flash fiction is increasingly popular, with thousands of national and international competitions each year. The concept is about maximising the impact while minimising the word count, and it can make for some powerful fiction.

Can you tell a great story in just 250 words? Do you have a short and sharp piece of fiction in your portfolio?

If so, submit your piece to us before the deadline of November 2nd. Check out our submissions page for all the details: https://theoghamstoneul.wordpress.com/submit/

Go on…flash your fiction in our direction!
