Keep the light on is an anthology of work created by 15 talented teenage writers selected for the week-long Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary, 2020. The goal of the bursary is to attract young writers with significant potential, and afford them the opportunity to explore that potential, whilst gaining an introduction to the world of publishing and literature as a course of academic study. As part of their prize, the winning students have their work published as a special edition under the MoLI Editions imprint, and this is our inaugural print. The mentor of note for 2020 was selected by Edna O’Brien and is the Galway based writer Alan McMonagle.
The MoLI shop is a book lover’s dream, stocking a handpicked selection of books, literary gifts & bespoke items.
