Over at 3:AM I interviewed Susan Tomaselli and Christodoulos Makris, good folk and editors of gorse, a Dublin-based literary journal. It’s been in the works for a while now, but we were able to get it ready just in time for Bloomsday 2016. Nice, too, that the interview contained some welcome news about their future plans.
Thanks to Susan and Christodoulos for their time and care.
I have a short story titled “Black chalk with touches of white on brown paper” in issue two of Gorse.
[Read an extract here.]
Gorse, edited by Susan Tomaselli, is a literary magazine out of Ireland that carries on the tradition of the avant-garde, Modernist “little magazine” of the early twentieth century (Niall McCormack pays homage with his beautiful covers for Gorse 1 and 2) – my kind of literary magazine, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
Super proud, also, to appear in the same pages as some writers I’m a big fan of, including Rob Doyle (his debut novel Here Are The Young Men is electric), Jonathan Gibbs (his novel Randall is a sharp take on the YBAs), Matt Jakubowski (who I shared the Murnane pages with in Music & Literature 3), and many more.
Gorse 2 is out now.
Big, big thanks to Susan.
