Delighted to be in the top 2%, ie on the long list for the erbacce prize. A few familiar names there, but also many from all over the world who I've never read. I love this competition. It's massive, it's free to enter, it's got a fabulous prize. Wish there were more like it.

Great news, Cathy. Wow. Even with so many entries, the cream rises.

Thanks! I've been told it'll definitely be a complete collection - they just keep the chapbook as an alternative prize in case someone wins it who doesn't have enough poems for a whole collection.

Brilliant news, Ms. Ambi! Now you’ve got some serious work ahead of you. The right poems in the right order. And an unforgettable title!

Absolutely! Title is SO important, but I can't decide that until I've whittled all the possibles down to a manageable number. Then I'll pick the most eye-catching poem title for the collection title. As for the order, that'll be decided in discussions between myself and the editor. Long way to go yet, but I love this whole process.
