ITT Short Story Competition 2017 - Winners Announced.

The top three stories in the 2017 Short Story Competition were announced at a ceremony in the Civic Theatre on the 12th of October. The results were:

1st Prize: Tony Devlin - 'Coronary Care'

2nd Prize: Jennifer Moore - 'Game Over'

3rd Prize: Ursula Brunetti - 'A History of Art and Sex'

Many thanks to competition judge Colm Keegan and especially to the writers who came to read on the day.

Here's Colm with Pat Nolan reading from the wryly funny 'Plighting Eddie's Troth'.

And Dee Roycroft with the wondrous, heartrending 'I Sent A Pray To God'.

Look out for the 2017 anthology - available soon!
