Mary Morrissy coming to Listowel 2010

May 24, 2010 By: Paul O'Mahony Category: 2010

I’m looking to see if Mary Morrissy has a Twitter account. I’d like to contact her…

This is the first link I found via Google: it’s an interview from 2007. I guess she keeps a low profile?

Mary is running a workshop called “Creative Writing” at Listowel Writers’ Week 2010. I’d love to contact Mary before the workshop or even contact someone who’s going to be at it.

You can find her books here.

Read this Dublin Quarterly conversation with her.

Mary Morrissy was born in Dublin in 1957. She has published one collection of short stories, A Lazy Eye (London, Jonathan Cape/ New York, Scribner, 1993).


Her novels are Mother of Pearl (Scribner, 1995/Jonathan Cape, 1996); and The Pretender (Jonathan Cape, 2000).


She won a Hennessy Award for short fiction in 1984, a Lannan Literary Prize in 1995, and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize in 1996.


She lives in Dublin.”

The blurb for the Workshop says:

“Want to keep fit as a writer? … toning language skills, developing character and building plot …. in-class writing will be involved… light reading… short assignments for homework.”

I wonder what Mary Morrissy considers “light reading”?

If we are privileged, Mary Morrissy will accept our invitation and write something here before the workshop…
