Well, while sitting about waiting for a baby to arrive I got some other good news instead: My poem ‘Land Girls’ has been shortlisted for the 2013 William Soutar Writing Prize. Hooray!

The winners will be announced as part of Perth Library’s Writers’ Day on August the 31st – if you’re about I’d really recommend heading over to the AK Bell library. There are to be readings from Brian Johnstone and Ron Butlin as well as workshops with Linda Cracknell and Gerry Cambridge – all looks wonderful and if I wasn’t expecting to have my hands rather full about that point, I’d be there with bells on.
