FRANK O'CONNOR

INTERNATIONAL

SHORT STORY FESTIVAL

 


Tess Gallagher

 

TESS GALLAGHER

 

Workshop Saturday 18th 9.30am

Reading Saturday 18th September 8.30pm

 

Tess Gallagher is the author of eight volumes of poetry, including Dear Ghosts, Moon Crossing Bridge, and My Black Horse. She is presently working on her New and Selected Poems. In 2008 Blackstaff Press in Belfast and Eastern Washington Press in America published Barnacle Soup—Stories from the West of Ireland, a collaboration with the Irish storyteller Josie Gray. Distant Rain, a conversation with the highly respected Buddhist nun, Jacucho Setouchi, of Kyoto, is both an art book and a cross cultural moment. Gallagher is also the author of Amplitude, Soul Barnacles: Ten More Years with Ray, A Concert of Tenses: Essays on Poetry, and two collections of short fiction: At the Owl Woman Saloon, The Lover of Horses and Other Stories and The Man from Kinvara: Selected Stories. She has also spearheaded the publication of Raymond Carver’s Beginners in Library of America’s complete collection of his stories. She spends time in a cottage on Lough Arrow in Co. Sligo in the West of Ireland and also lives and writes in her hometown of Port Angeles, Washington.
