Happily amazed to be announced as a Finalist! Fiction & Poetry Category, Banff Mountain Book Competition 2021. Just brilliant news. See the spine of the book on their publicity thumbnail!?! Ridiculously excited about that.
Writing poetry in the van, funding self-publishing, paying the postage sending books off to Canada all require a certain stubbornness and faith. This announcement from Banff is like being given some clean water to play in, after digging in the dirt. I like the dirt too! But this feels pretty special.
A couple of short poems made it to the Winter 2019/20 edition of Sheep Breeder magazine. They are starting up a poetry competition! Send all sheep-related poetry to the super-friendly firstname.lastname@example.org.
