I'm on the shortlist (of 11) for the Room to Write short story competition - which means my story will now get read by Pat Barker and David Almond. Shocked

Thanks Paul. Even if I get no further than the shortlist, I still get to go and have drinks and nibbles with Pat Barker and other luminaries next month. Don't think I've ever socialised with a Booker Prize winner before. Cool

Didn't get further than the shortlist of 11, but was told by the organisers that it was VERY close thing as regards the winners.

Here I am at the prize-giving, with my new best pal Booker Prize winning author Pat Barker.

Hey, that's Pat Barker with well known poet, artist and musician, Catherine Edmunds.

Well done, Cathy.

Thanks Mandy Smile

Hubby panicked when I asked him to take the photo, as he really does not 'do' cameras - I had to show him which button to press - but he came up trumps.
