My Writing Resume

Click here for my latest posts.

Although this is a writing blog, I don't talk about my own writing as much as I thought I was going to.

In case you're wondering if I've ever actually written anything, here's a list of my produced work. I'm only listing writing which has had a full production - there's loads and loads of un-produced material that will hopefully add to this list one day.

Thank you Anon. I think it's best if I just hang in my own room for now. But your suggestion makes me smile and I appreciate it very much. :) (See?)

Hi Ken, Paul here, I got your name through a book publishing event in Tallaght, as part of the Redonlinebookfestival. I am writing some short stories and plays at the moment. I based in Dublin. would you be available to meet up to have a chat re ideas and support?

Hi Paul, I'm afraid time and distance constraints would make that difficult to do. I'm in Mayo and very short of spare time these days. For what it's worth, you have my support and my advice is hugely overrated. :)

Have you sought out some of the writers groups and resources closer to you. I bet you have.

Sorry I can't be much use at the moment. I'm only grinding along myself so wouldn't be much use anyway. Thanks for getting in touch. :)
