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 …
“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
