This school year, St. Aidan's is extremely lucky to have a very talented and successdul Writer-in-Residence, Mia Gallagher. Mia is working with students across the year groups helping them to develop their writing skills.
Mia’s debut novel ‘HellFire’ received international critical acclaim and the Irish Tatler Literary Award 2007. It is currently being translated into Italian. Her short stories have been published in Ireland, the UK and the US and have won the START short fiction award as well as being nominated for a Hennessy Award.
Mia has also devised and written for the stage and worked as a scriptwriter and script editor for TV, film and digital media. We are delighted that she will be working with us this year.
