Fish is an open door that's inviting writers to walk through it.
It has to be encouraged, celebrated, congratulated. - RODDY DOYLE -


Fish is doing God's own work.
It's an inspiration and an avenue to writers everywhere.

- FRANK McCOURT -


I hail anyone who enters the Fish Prize . . . It is difficult to create from dust.
I know that the best stories are those that are still untold -
so keep writing, keep creating, keep the faith.
- COLUM McCANN -
