Poetry prize!!

So I can finally reveal that my first full-length poetry collection, Tree Language, has been short-listed for the Melita Hume Poetry Prize!! The prize is £1000 plus publication by Eyewear Publishing headed up by the Canadian poet and editor, Todd Swift.
The winner will be announced in September but it's very nice to be short-listed! 
I'm also pleased to have a poem in the next edition of the gorgeous Glasgow-based Gutter Mag!

Couldn't happen to a nicer lassie. On both counts. Mind you I half-expected your collection to be called Bloody Poems. Maybe the next one, eh?
