‘A treasure trove of soul fuel with deep roots in Irish soil’ Irish Times

Originally from Philadelphia, Una Mannion is a writer and teacher based in County Sligo. She has won numerous prizes for her work including the Hennessy New Irish Writing Poetry Award, The Cúirt Short Fiction Award, and Doolin Short Story Prize.. Her work has been published in numerous journals and anthologies including The Art of the Glimpse: 100 Irish Short Stories and her debut novel A Crooked Tree will be published by Faber and Faber in the UK and Ireland and by Harper Collins in the US in January 2021. Her piece in Winter Papers 6 is entitled ‘A False Crawl’.

John Patrick McHugh is from Galway. His work has appeared in The Tangerine, Banshee, Granta, Winter Papers 2 and 6, and The Stinging Fly. His short story debut collection, Pure Gold, is to be published by New Island in February 2021. His piece in Winter Papers 6 is entitled ‘Death and the Family’.

Oonagh Montague is a writer from Cork. She was the editor of Arts Ireland for five years. She is also a reformed journalist. Now, Oonagh likes to write in the quiet moments between solo parenting and working as a lecturer/trainer. Those don't exist, so Oonagh writes on the back of her hand while doing the food shop. Her piece in Winter Papers 6 is entitled ‘The Eye of a Storm’.

Kevin Barry is co-editor of Winter Papers as well as being the author of three novels and three short story collections. His awards include the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, the Goldsmiths Prize, the Sunday Times EFG Short Story Award and the Lannan Foundation Literary Award. He also works as a playwright and screenwriter, and he lives in County Sligo, Ireland. His last novel, Night Boat to Tangier, was an Irish number one bestseller, was longlisted for the Booker Prize and shortlisted for Novel of the Year at the Irish Book Awards. His new collection of short stories That Old Country Music was published by Canongate in October 2020.
