Flash Fiction Festival. Anthology
Very happy to have my flash ‘Kafka’s Bedroom’ included in this fantastic and flashy anthology.
‘Sixty micro fictions written by participants and presenters inspired by the second UK Flash Fiction Festival held in Bristol, July 2018. The stories here, by writers from several different countries, touch on world politics, relationships in all their forms, fantasy and historical themes. Short-short fictions that surprise and linger long.’
The anthology is published and available though Ad Hoc Fiction.
In collaboration with London Drawing Group. This essay was written to accompany a life-drawing workshop in which I, as the model, was placed in a series of traditionally female poses to highlight the contrast between gender perceptions. The class was a great success and a very rewarding experience.
It was an honour to have my short story 'And the Waves Take the Words' included in this astounding collection of end-of-the-world tales.
'From Trumpocalypse to Brexit Britain, brick by brick the walls are closing in. But don’t despair. Bulldoze the borders. Conquer freedom not fear. EXIT EARTH explores all life – past, present, or future – on, or off – this beautiful, yet fragile, world of ours. Final embraces beneath a sky of flames. Tears of joy aboard a sinking ship. Laughter in a lonely land. Dystopian or utopian, realist or fantasy, horror or sci-fi, EXIT EARTH is yours to conquer.'
The anthology launched in December, 2017, and published by Storgy.
Very happy to have several of my poems included in this comical yet sentuous collection of erotic haiku.
'Haiku To Fuck To is an anthology that celebrates sexuality and the human body. Between its covers you are invited to explore the many facets of sex, sensuality and the imperfect… The 52 haiku contained within play with themes of intimacy, gender, romance and societal views, and are presented on a backdrop of illustrations, artwork and photography – a canvas as vibrant and diverse as the subject itself.'
The anthology was released though Spark the Word creations.
The Ogham Stone
Proud to have my story 'My Father Was a Man of the Ocean' included in this anthology curated by the MA students of Limerick University.
'..here at Limerick, we are like the narrator of Philip Webb Gregg’s story in this volume: always ready to walk into the waves, recognising that writing is a process like the rhythm of the tides, like the rhythm of a heartbeat, like the way the Shannon slides on the river of itself down to the sea.'
A collaborative play produced by Twisted Willow Theatre. Ten writers individually created ten different scenes using the same characters and concepts. The scenes were then woven and folded together by head writer Kim Komljanec to create a coherent narrative. It enjoyed a two week run at the Corpus Christi Playroom in Cambridge and did pretty well. An interesting and fun experience. My scene comes in at about 36 mins on the first half. With thanks to the cast & director.
