Back in the spring, I was asked to write guest blogs for writing.ie and writing4all.ie (no longer available) about the whys, the hows, the whats of setting up THE SOUTH CIRCULAR. After over a year of planning the project and the first issue (published in March 2012), I felt more than ready to describe my reasons for venturing onto an unknown publishing, entrepreneurial and creative prairie. I couldn’t be happier about the way things are going at the moment and the possibilities and collaborations that are beginning to present themselves. What started as a boozy conversation with a friend in a souless late-night joint, has now become just the beginning of an undeniable journey of commissioning, making and doing. Thanks for all of your support so far.
