A unique collection of short stories by new and established talents in Ireland

Surge showcases sixteen previously unpublished short stories, featuring work from new Irish writing talents alongside offerings from acclaimed and award-winning playwrights and short story writers: Frank McGuinness, Mary Morrissy, Éilís Ní Dhuibhne, Gina Moxley, Darran McCann and Mike McCormack.

This unique anthology contains the very best of the next generation of Irish authors: ten original stories have been selected from the postgraduate creative writing programmes in Trinity College Dublin, UCD, UCC, UCG and Queen's University Belfast, plus six unpublished stories from established writers who teach on these courses. 

To be published as part of O’Brien Press’ 40th anniversary celebrations. Surge was originally a literary magazine by the New Theatre Group 1937-1943, co-founded by Thomas O'Brien, who set up O'Brien Press with Michael O'Brien in 1974.

Frank McGuinness is Professor of Creative Writing in University College Dublin. A world-renowned playwright, his first great stage hit was the highly acclaimed ‘Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme’. He is also a highly skilled adapter of plays by writers such as Ibsen, Sophocles, Brecht, and writer of several film scripts, including Dancing at Lughnasa, and he has published several anthologies of poetry.
