A short bio note on Writing Train guest tutor Anthony Glavin

Brief bio on Anthony Glavin, guest tutor on Bofin Weekend No. 2. An editor of ‘New Irish Writing’ in the Irish Press, long-time Commissioning Editor for New Island Books, Tony’s acclaimed first novel, Nighthawk Alley, and two short-story collections, One for Sorrow and The Draughtsman and The Unicorn, have been followed by inclusion in more anthologies than I could list here. Suffice to say they include The Faber Book of Irish Short Stories 2006/7.

Those are the hard facts. Other things you need to know include the following note: I rarely bring guest tutors in to Writing Train. I’m bringing Anthony to Inishbofin because he is a truly wonderful teacher and one of nature’s utter gentlemen. For knowledge and generous geniality I can hardly think of a writer / teacher I’d rate more highly ( except for the others I invite betimes to teach at Writing Train: novelist Yvonne Cassidy and poet Mark Granier). So that’s Anthony!

And here he is in full flow!
