KEVIN O’SHEA lived in Connemara, in Moycullen, within earshot of the old Galway-Clifden Railway. Having retreated from the world of technology to timidly confront the world of imagination, Kevin was short-listed for Over The Edge New Writer of the Year in both 2009 and 2010. He has been published in Irish Left Review, Ropes, Pen Tales, Northern Liberties Review and Mosaic. In 2012 he was the winner of the Cuirt New Writing Prize for Poetry. The Art of Non-Fishing is his first collection of poetry. Very sadly, Kevin passed away unexpectedly in May 2014.
