I am Guest Editor for new literary zine, Virtual Zine. For 2018/19, I am one of four Senior Editors selected to curate the inaugural list of the Best in British & Irish Flash Fiction for TSS Publishing #BIFFY50. In 2018, I was also a reader of short story submissions for TSSPublishing.
I was selected as a participant in the inaugural XBorders Project, an innovative new cross-border project bringing emerging writers together to explore and write about borders through fiction or non-fiction. I teach creative writing workshops for Kerry County Arts and have had four residencies at Cill Rialaig Artist Retreat, Ballinskelligs, Kerry.
