My poem ‘Strange Loop’ is featured on Agenda’s online supplement that accompanies the soon to be published new issue ‘Celtic Mists’. I think it’s on p.20.

http://www.agendapoetry.co.uk/documents/CelticMistsWebsupplement.pdf

This is being a good day for me because I’ve just heard I won 2nd prize in the Build Africa competition and also a Highly Commended!

I think ‘Artichokes and an Olive Grove’ started life as a Monday Flash and ‘Titania’s Wood’ was a Stirred Poet entry when Doug forced everyone to write a sonnet! Shocked

Almost a grand slam home run (you got a triple! sorry, baseball season...) - I voted for Grove and for Wood Very Happy The first one sounds intriguing so shall investigate soon. Wonderful news. You have been so busy with judging things throughout this year, and offering invaluable advice, that it is really nice to see your work being recognized for its own worth. Good timing too, with the new book brewing!
Much respect,
Francine xox

Yay, Mandy Smile

Had a read through Agenda, looks good.

And that's a great result in the comp too.

You are quite simply a brilliant poet (as well as a great person too). And I'm quite sure that whoever 'the powers that be' in the poetry world are there that they'll be recognising it very shortly ...

Very sweet on both counts, Mandy.

And it’s cool to know you’ve established a relationship with the editor of Agenda.

Cheers Cool
