Places of

I'm really excited to have had my poem 'River Dove' selected for inclusion in the Places of Poetry print anthology (Ed. Paul Farley), thanks to Andrew McRae. Particularly pleased about this poem as it was longlisted by Michael Longley for The Rialto Nature and Place Poetry Competition, and I feel like I've done Wombwell proud with it.

Mention six

Chuffed to bits to have another honourable mention, this time for the Strands International Flash Fiction Competition 6! Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to Jose Varghese and Strands!

When you find yourself on the shortlist with #3 in Amazon's Best Seller list, Damyanti Biswas, plus Brindley Hallam Dennis, Bruce Meyer, Douglas Bruton, Janet Olearski, Paul Beckman, Riham Adly, Susan Borgersen. Thanks to all of these talented writers, I have a little of my writing confidence back. Last thanks but by no means least go to Jose Varghese and Strands.
