Postcard fiction

Pick up a postcard of writing prompts to jump-start your own short, short fiction this week. Postcards are available in the exhibition Menagerie: Animals by Artists at Crawford Art Gallery & Cork City Library on Grand Parade.

All participants will be in with a chance to win a Waterstones book voucher and a free signed copy of The Art of Falling, One City One Book choice, 2021.

Cork author Danielle McLaughlin has created a playful postcard of writing prompts

inspired by the exhibition Menagerie: Animals by Artists in the Crawford Art Gallery. 

Danielle McLaughlin’s novel is called The Art Of Falling and it is the chosen book for Cork City Libraries’ One City One Book initiative. It revolves around a fictional sculptor, while art works inspired by animals thread through her narrative.

A filmed conversation between Danielle and writer Alannah Hopkin on animals in art is freely available to watch from home at

Cork City Libraries & Crawford Art Gallery support creativity at all ages and during

Positive Ageing Week (27 September to 1 October).
