Poetry success

The first success of the blogging era!  A poem called ‘One for the Road’, dealing quite graphically with the consequences of drinking and driving, has been placed in the last 20 short list in the Wirral Festival of Firsts competition – www.festivaloffirsts.com.  A modest enough achievement, the last 20, but the organisers have announced a total entry of 366, which perhaps puts the result in perspective. The final placings are to be announced on July 6th, and fingers crossed for that, but bearing in mind that it wasn’t so long ago that I was thinking of abandoning poetry competition entries and concentrating entirely on short fiction, the odd ‘score’ along the way is an encouragement to keep on!
