Event description
John Patrick McHugh & Nicole Flattery chaired by Mia Colleran

About this event

John Patrick McHugh has slowly been building a name for himself over several years as a short story writer, publishing his work in in literary journals such as The Stinging Fly, Granta and Winter Papers. HIs debut collection Pure Gold is set on a fictional island, partly inspired by Achill, where his mother hails from. As a person battling with dyslexia, he has overcome it to produce not only his own fine work but has been rated by his friend Sally Rooney as an invaluable editor and advisor to her.

Stinging Fly editor Tom Morris was instrumental in connecting McHugh with Rooney and two other budding talents, Nicole Flattery and Michael Nolan, to support and mentor each other. Flattery joins McHugh for this event to discuss their work.

After completing her studies at Trinity College – theatre and film with a Master’s in creative writing – Nicole Flattery made a name for herself as a writer of short-stories, gaining a following through works published in the Stinging Fly, White Review, Dublin Review, and Winter Papers.

In 2017, she won the prestigious White Review Short Story Prize for her story ‘Track’, and on the back of that success signed a reported six-figure, two-book deal with Bloomsbury. Her first collection of short stories “Show Them A Good Time” was published by The Stinging Fly Press in February 2019
