Poised!

A while ago I blogged about The Poised Pen's short story and poetry competitions. I'm pleased to say that I actually got around to sending an entry - and delighted to say I've been long-listed! I'm sure I recognise some of the other names on the list too.

I'd love to say I'll be jumping in the van to read at the results event in Liverpool on 7th December, but it's a long way and we already have trips booked for December so I'm not sure it's possible. The transport manager is looking into it.

    1. Lack of time is the biggest factor, Annie. Unusually for us, we've got a lot going on at the end of this year.

  3. Well done! I really want to go along on the night (I used to live in Liverpool and still have friends there) but I already have plans.

    1. I'd like to go, but it's 250 miles each way and we're going away soon after so it isn't looking likely for me either, Cath.

    1. Thanks, Susan. I believe the winner has already been chosen, so it's just a question of waiting.

    1. If I lived close enough to come back the same night, that's probably what I'd have done, Lindsay.

  9. Liverpool is my home town, the Poised Pen meets just along the street from my old school. If you do go, give the old place my love. Many congrats on the long listing, and good luck!

    1. Thanks, Rosemary. I really should make more effort to enter the competitions I blog about as I could enter far more than I do.
