Telling stories is in our DNA. It’s an Irish thing. Getting them down on paper can be a bit more challenging.

Some years ago, high up in the Dublin mountains, I met Bernadette Kearns at a creative writing course. As a course facilitator, her depth of knowledge and her no-nonsense approach immediately struck me. We kept in touch and, over the years, I got to know and appreciate the range and quality of many of the writers she supports on an ongoing basis.

Bernadette recently edited a short story for me. Within an agreed timeline and following lively exchanges, she guided and supported me to ensure my story reached its full potential. She also gave me something else: a strong sense of pride and confidence in my work. I will continue to work with Bernadette and would highly recommend her to others.
