Just had two excellent pieces of news:

The Arts Council (England) have decided to support my Poetry off the Page project, so suddenly lots of exciting ideas begin to become real. Fantastic!

And, in the same post, heard my poem “Consolations of the Geriatrics’ Porter” has won a third prize in the Red Shed poetry competition.

[And, a little later, I discovered a poem that failed in another competition, “Into, not from”, has been selected for inclusion in an anthology called “Blue Hyacinths”]
