FICTION/POETRY PROJECTS:

Currently In Progress: MMXCI was unsurprisingly rejected as a contest entry. This has caused a significant rethink to the long-form plan going forward. Watch this Space.

The two poetry collections from last year that were rejected in competition have now gone out for what will be the third time of asking. This year we’ve also submitted for two residencies, both with a poetic slant. I really don’t expect to get either, which might yet mean both happen and I have to choose. That would be lovely.

The Short Story Collection I was working on for competitive submission has been split into individual lumps. First two parts will be going to contest in the second week of this month.

In Episodic Fiction News:: EX/WHI really is honestly returning (again) via the Internet of Words website, I just need to deal with my panic over long form work in general.

I am a winner of the Members’ Poems competition in the Winter 2018 issue of Poetry News, official publication of the Poetry Society. The theme of the contest was ‘The Abstract Space’, inspired by the poetry of W.S. Graham and judged by Rachael Boast.

The poem that won, The Beast in Cyberspace, can be read on the Poetry Society’s website. I’ll also be performing this piece live at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden on February 8th.

Other poetry will appear on @MoveablePress or @InternetofWords via Twitter. Note my Twitter handle’s changed. Don’t trust whoever it is pretending to be @AlternativeChat. They’re lying.
