… always the bridesmaid :) *

Updating my blog  yesterday reminded me that I have been meaning to announce a few close calls I’ve had in the last two or three months, but have never quite got round to.

So in the order they’ve happened …

glamoured” was Highly Commended in the Interstellar Award for Speculative Poetry (see here for judges comments, 4th paragraph)

interstellar heron” was Shortlisted in the Interstellar Award for Speculative Poetry (shortlist announced)

full moon feast” was Commended for the 2014 W B Yeats Poetry Prize for Australia

slumber” was Commended for the 2014 W B Yeats Poetry Prize for Australia

concentric circles or: we have you surrounded” was Shortlisted for the 2015 mindshare Poetry Awards

Click on the links to take you to where the poems have been published online.

I’ll keep plugging away, & hopefully be able to share news of a wedding or two soon.

* by bridesmaid i mean, just out of the $$$ round (which — like most people — is why i got into the poetry game, for all the big bikkies you can win, bwahahahahahahahahaha)

† 2014 is correct, even though it was announced in late 2015
