I cannot believe that I have neglected to give these successes a proper post, they deserve more than a mere reference in a monthly review.
In May the deadline for submissions to the Seamus Heaney Anthology were extended, I took full advantage & submitted some poems, one of which – ‘Bridgework’ was accepted for publication.
The launch is planned for late summer in Norwich.
Later in May, an April submission bore fruition. Paper Swans accepted my poem ‘Ambiguous Answers’ in the up and coming School Days Anthology.
There will be London, Oxford and Edinburgh launches for this publication.
I am delighted.
This year I have been focussing on building my own collection and have watched submission deadlines sail past without entry. So I am hugely fortunate that 6 months into the year I already have work published in three anthologies and several websites.
