Cafe Writers’ Competition

February 2, 2012

I’m very pleased to have a poem and story in the latest elimae. elimae is a very unique webjournal with a very particular house style.

I’ve got two poems in the latest edition of the webjournal, Alba – link here. Alba is a great journal devoted to short poetry.

It was great to see that my poem ‘The Swim’ was commended in the Gregory O’Donoghue International Poetry Competition.

Finally, I was very surprised and pleased to discover that I won the Cafe Writers’ Competition. The competition was judged by the Pascale Petit – I’m very proud that a writer of her calibre chose my poem. Some nice mentions by both Peter Goulding and Michael Farry – thanks to both.
