I was thrilled to get an email from the 2015 Sussex Poets Competition run by Brighton and Hove Arts Council to say I'd made the shortlist with my poem
Teatime at the Clarkes.
I don't know which prize but they're being announced on Friday 25th September at the Awards Evening. I'll add the poem here afterwards.
This is a welcome boost, as any writer knows, and especially as I've been concentrating on developing my own writing lately.
I also attended a poetry course with the poet John McCullough recently. John's tuition is excellent and I learn a lot.
