Managed to achieve a 'Highly Commended' in this one, which gets me an invitation to read my poem at a celebratory event in Manchester (can't go, unfortunately) plus publication in the prize-winners' anthology.

Well done. That's certainly quite an achievement.

Congratulations, Ms Ambi. I know the feeling about not being able to attend events... Sad

Thanks ermyntrude and eric Smile

Can't possibly get to Manchester, unfortunately - the distance means I'd have to stay overnight. I can't afford the travelling, the accommodation and the loss of earnings (I'd have to cancel teaching to do it).

Congrats, Cathy. Shame you can't go though.
