‘The lost art of penning you a love note’ is named a runner-up at the 2011 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize

I am both thrilled and honoured to be named as a runner-up in this prestigious competition, named after the great Queensland poet Thomas Shapcott. The announcement was made last night as part of opening night festivities for he 2011 Queensland Poetry Festival. I was delighted to meet two of the judges, Felicity Plunkett and Justin Clemens who had some lovely things to say about my collection, and some wonderful advice. I am now seeking a publisher for the collection so I can eventually get it out there for everyone to read. Thank you to all my friends and supporters for helping to keep me motivated.

    Hi John…thanks very much! Unfortunately the QPF and my free weekends did not match up this year, which is sad as there was so much I would have liked to have seen and experienced! The joys of single parenthood 🙂 Hope the festival has gone well. Maybe next year for me!
