A little ‘hooray for me’ post: I have been commended in the Ware Poets Open Competition 2016, for my poem The Thereminist Hails a Bus.
The competition is judged by Philip Gross, a poet for whom I have a lot of respect – so I’m really pleased.
Also, this is a poem that I wrote (quite quickly!) for day 22 of NaPoWriMo 2016 in April – which for me goes to show how it’s worth persisting with and experimenting with what you write!
I’ll be making my way to Ware on the 8th July for the prizegiving and anthology launch, am looking forward to it.
