I have some exciting news I just have to share.
I was delighted to hear recently that I had been shortlisted, along with 15 other entries, for the international Yeovil Prize in the short story category. The final results were published today and I was awarded a COMMENDED. This is my first major placing in a competition and I am very happy. It is a massive boast to your confidence to know that your work is good enough to catch the judges eye. There were 386 entries received in the short story category in total. For more details go here or here.
I'm off to celebrate and bask in a warm glow for a while. Have a great weekend everyone.
