How Exciting!

1 Nov

You may remember, if you’ve been reading me that long, that last year I had a poem accepted for the Best of Manchester Poets Anthology

I had an email yesterday to say I’ve had another accepted for this year’s anthology, Best of Manchester Poets 2 (not an original title but I don’t care – I’ve had a poem accepted!)

Thanks to my 101/1001 challenge, I am making more effort this year to submit poems, and it seems to be paying off.

Here’s the cover of this year’s book:

 

If you are interested, you can read here about how I went to BoMP 1’s launch and almost lost the ability to walk.

More recent readers might be surprised to learn I write poetry; you can check it out on my other blog.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
