‘Fighting Tuesdays’ was launched at Larkin Community College on Tuesday 25th May.

Jonathan Moore and Marian Ivanov read extracts from their stories and Amanda Miller, Carina Tkachova and Desislava Barimova spoke about their experiences writing the stories.

Several of the students will be doing radio interviews over the coming weeks.

Thank you to Larkin Community College for organising this great event and to friends and family for attending.

On Tuesday 27th April, Transition Year students from Larkin Community College, along with volunteers from Fighting Words, visited Colour Books in Baldoyle .

They had the opportunity to see “Fighting Tuesdays”, a book of short stories they have been working on since September 2009 in the printing process.

“Fighting Tuesdays” is a book of 24 short stories , each written by a Larkin College TY student. The group came to Fighting Words on Tuesday afternoons from September – May and wrote, redrafted and edited their short stories, helped and encouraged by Fighting Words volunteers.

The book, with a foreword written by Roddy Doyle and an introduction by Hugo Hamilton, will be launched on Tuesday 25th May.

The book has been published by the Stinging Fly Press.
The Stinging Fly Press was established in 2005 and operates in tandem with The Stinging Fly literary magazine as an outlet for the work of new and emerging writers.

The book will be available in all the good bookshops. To purchase it online, please click HERE.
