2009 Hennessy Awards

Congratulations to OC Selina Guinness, who has been short-listed in the 2009 Hennessy XO Awards in the First Fiction category for her story 'Among the Living'. Selina was the guest speaker at a TY English Evening in the past, and edited the 2004 anthology The New Irish Poets for Bloodaxe Books.

Also shortlisted, in the Emerging Writer category, is Kevin Power, for his short story 'The American Girl'; recently we recommended his first novel, Bad Day in Blackrock (nominated as Best Irish Newcomer in the forthcoming Irish Book Awards). Power is also nominated in the Poetry category.
