I have always enjoyed reading poetry, short stories, and novels and I frequently attempted to write over the years. In order to develop my writing skills, I enrolled on the Maynooth University Creative Writing Certificate in 2015. Since then, I have had a short story published in Live Encounters, When Skies are Grey, and I have performed this at various live mic events. I also won the Kildare Readers Short Story competition and had two short stories short-listed in the RTE Francis MacManus short story competition, which were subsequently broadcast. In addition, two of my poems were long listed in the Anthony Cronin and Fish Publishing competitions.
