Northampton Literature Group run an Open Poetry competition. They’ve awarded me second prize in the free verse category for my poem “Till death”, and “Satan’s gift was also shortlisted in the rhyming category.

“Till death” will go on their website, but I don’t think there’ll be any other publication.

Adjudication is on Thursday (17th). Still unsure if I’ll get to it or not, to read.

A couple of days later also heard from the Southport competition that “Eclipsed” had been Highly Commended, which is pretty good (in the top 6), I guess.
