I am being published!

This is so unreal. I got an email today saying that, while I didn’t place in the competition, my poem ‘Advice for the Patient’ made the ‘Highly Commended’ longlist so will be included in the anthology! Considering that they had over 500 entries and only 10 have made it into the book, I feel very chuffed.

I submitted a poem for the Watermark competition – there was prize money but the competition was to be put into an anthology that would be sold to raise money for the Watermark Flood Fund. Part of the reason I submitted was because my home area of Salford was badly affected by the Christmas flooding. Now I’ll be a part of a fund relief effort!

As soon as I have a link/further details, I will update this.
