Shortlisted for the 2016 Magpie Prize for Poetry

Magpie AwardI’m super pleased to pass on the news that I am shortlisted for the 2016 Magpie Prize for Poetry, through the kind folks of Pulp Literature. 

And I’m not just pleased because the prize is named after a remarkable bird (Did you know that the black-billed magpie has a tail that makes up half of its length? That’s a long tail!).

My best wishes to my fellow shortlisted poets and my thanks to Pulp Literature for running the contest. What fun!
