Just about now the announcements and readings for the Troubadour Prize run by Coffee House Poetry, will be taking place. And one of them will be mine. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make the trip down to London to do the reading myself, so that’s the usual disappointment, but I’m really pleased to have been selected, even if, once again, it’s a Commendation and £20 rather than a big prize. However, the poem, “The Price of Chocolate”, will appear on their website.

This is another poem to come from my Women and Warfare project. So far, six poems from it have acheived some form of publication, and three have been commended in competitions.
