Writing & Literature

Eoin O’Connor


If you read my work, you’ll find that I write about the macabre and few very of my stories are light-hearted. I enjoy exploring darker themes and how they relate to every-day life, how things like death and loss can affect us, how superstition can play a part in how we navigate our lives, and how the Irish landscape can be used as a catalyst for writing about the supernatural, cosmic horror.

I am twenty-one, I live in Sligo and am a graduate of the BA Writing & Literature programme. I write short stories and screenplays and my biggest interests are genre fiction, filmmaking, sci-fi, horror and other dark things like that, because my imagination and sense of humour are pitch black.
