I seem to be on a bit of a roll at the moment when it comes to poetry. My poem Tryst is in Issue 3 of the Burning Bush 2 and I have been longlisted for the Cork Literary Review Poetry Manuscript Competition, which is a huge encouragement. And on top all that I just got a call this afternoon from the Hawkswell Theatre to tell me that my poem Taking Simple Vows has been commended in this year’s iYeats poetry competition judged by Theo Dorgan and Paula Meehan. That’s two years in a row! The winners and commended poems should be up on their site soon, so I’ll post a link then.
Long may it continue! These are the good days… I’ve had plenty of the other ones over the years and will do again no doubt.
