Hi, my name is Martin. I have only recently began to write some short stories. I've just joined writing.ie as an emerging writer, and I am really excited about gathering more information on what to do with my stories, and also being able to confer with other writers. Looking forward to developing my skills and having some fun along the way.

With a degree in journalism, completed courses at the Irish Writer's Centre and a working blog, I am advancing my debut historical fiction...
