Delighted to find out that my entry for the 2012 Unbound Press Flash Fiction competition was shortlisted. Somehow this makes me feel more justified for continuing to explore other forms as well as poetry, not that a writer should need justification for such a thing but it’s nice! I believe a new short play of mine is going to have a reading soon as well. More details on that to come.
