Telling your own story
Everybody has a story to tell! This page not only gives you advice from lrish writers to help you further your writing, it also deals with your own histories. This is where we give you the chance to exchange your experience and thoughts...... so that you can tell us your story. I had the honour of judging the short story contest of the Ireland Country Womans' Association a few years ago.
Indeed, I was judging for two years and was overwhelmed by the submissions. It felt to me that the tales are an important chronicle of Irish living and must be upheld. I am pleased now that writing. ie can facilitate the inclusion of individual histories, and we work with the National Folklore Collection in UCD to make sure that your experience is maintained for this and coming generation.
In the last 80 years, indeed in the last 10 years, Ireland has experienced drastic changes in society - it has affected different peoples in different ways, and here we are hoping that you will divide your experience by the words you use. However, our "Tell Your Own Story" section is not only for Irishmen who live in Ireland, but also for Irishmen who live all over the globe, for all those who have an Irish link - tell us your story about your family's past and present migration, about getting used to a new civilization, the ups and downs of your own lives.
Cheerful, depressing, crazy or drama, Monday Miscellany gives you the opportunity to leave comments, exchange your thoughts and experience and show the rest of the day what's going on in your own time. Each has a story to tell - divide it here into poetic or fiction with up to 750 words. Submission is possible from Monday, 11 April 2011.
What is your story? We' re open for entries from Monday 11 April 2011 and look forward to your reminiscences. Sharing your memory and helping to create the National Folklore Collection, which reflects the life of the Irishmen wherever they live. Entries of up to 1500 words, poems or fiction.
We' re looking for all sorts of memoirs, here are some ideas; what does writing mean to you? Sharing your story with other authors. The writer Ita Roche introduced us with a few words about how she deals with writing and lethenia. Entries open Monday, April 11, 2011, up to 750 words.
