Emma Press

I'm over-the-moon to have been notified that my poems made the longlist of 77 out of 413 submissions for The Emma Press Adults' Poetry Pamphlets call-out. 

Added to last week's news that my Childrens' Poetry Collections submission made the 'maybes' list of 75 out of 105, I'm feeling pretty lucky, and grateful to Emma Press Editor and namesake Emma, firstly for reading such a huge pile of submissions, but especially for connecting with my poems - poems I unreservedly put my heart into - which is the most affirming thing imaginable. 

Best of luck to all the other longlistees. As I fidget nervously to see if I make the shortlist of 15 - 30 pamphlets in the coming week, I'm certain that the published pamphlets will be worth the wait!
