I tend to avoid any advertising on this site but here are reasons why I am to bloging this comp!
- I was asked to tell my networks really nicely by Anne-Marie.
- Going up to Troubadour Poetry Nights for the last three years has really kept me going! Brill poetry and as I go up from Brighton on my own, it’s great that I nearly always find someone interesting to have a chat to.
- Less pretentious than most comps.
So just where did I put my magic pile of prize winning poems?
…umm it’s a bit of a pity I’m just publishing my second collection so I think I may be poeted out!
