Celebrate short stories at the Dylan Thomas Festival

Impress prize winner Roshi Fernando and Sunday Times Short Story winner Kevin Barry are to appear at the Dylan Thomas Festival on Tuesday 30 October.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 26, 2012 - Impress prize winner Roshi Fernando and Sunday Times Short Story winner Kevin Barry are to appear at the Dylan Thomas Festival on Tuesday 30 October.

Kevin Barry has been described by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh as “the most arresting and original writer to emerge from these islands for years.”

Barry’s collection of short stories Dark Lies the Island tells stories about love and cruelty, crimes, desperation and hope.

Impress prize winner Roshi Fernando studied in Swansea University, and her interlinked stories follow a community of Sri Lankan immigrants in London.

The Impress prize is in its sixth year and its aim is to find exciting new, unpublished writing talent.

Roshi said “I’m delighted to be part of the Dylan Thomas Festival. When I was about ten my mother read 'Under Milk Wood' to me, she was an English teacher.  In her sing song, slightly Sri Lankan accent, it made perfect sense.  

“Kevin Barry is a consummate writer, and maybe even a better performer of his work - to be on the same stage as him at the festival will be a joy.  

“Between myself and Kevin, I think we'll give the audience a little bit of the spirit of Dylan Thomas, I know we'll do him justice”.

Jo Furber Swansea Council’s Literature Officer said "The Dylan Thomas Festival celebrates arts and entertainment including music, theatre, art and prose. We are thrilled to welcome our impressive range of talented guests to the 2012 Festival.  

Tickets are £6, £4.20 for concessions and £2.40 PTL. They are available from the Box Office on 01792 463980 or online at http://www.ticketsource.co.uk/dylanthomas.
