Author Biography

Clem Cairns started Fish Publishing out of surprise and dismay that in Ireland - a spiritual home of the short story - it was so hard to get published. Many promising writers of the form were going to London and more were told that the form was dying. The Fish Short Story Prize aimed to help redress that situation. Before all this he was a fisherman, farmer, sign-maker. Originally from Dublin, he lives in West Cork with his partner Jula Walton and their five children.
