Harrow Libraries World Poetry Day 2015 competition



So I thought I should enter, firstly to push my work out there a bit more, beyond the boundaries of my writing group, and also (as co-leader of the group) to lead by example and encourage our members to also enter.

I entered 'asthma', (which is on this blog under May 2013) due to the positive feedback from my friends at Pinner Writers Group and a feeling that this would be the best of my most recent poems, and was very pleased to get the call saying I was shortlisted into the final ten and to read at the presentation afternoon at Harrow Arts Centre on 21st March.

And to trim a long story shorter, I was awarded 2nd place in the adults (over 18) category, which is great feedback and affirmation.
