Have managed three shortlistings, including both a Commended and a Highly Commended in the York Mix poetry competition, so am seriously considering popping down there for the prize event to read out my poems and receive plaudits, if not actual cash.

Nicely done.

Well, well done you! I had one shortlisted and was chuffed to bits with that. Go and read them in York. I'd have gone and I'm much further away than you Smile

I've booked my train ticket, so I'm definitely going - but you'll have to forget I've said anything about this, as I've just been told I'm not allowed to until after the event. Quite how one is supposed to publicise something without talking about it I don't know, but there you have it.

As Manuel would say: "I know a-nothing."
