All the way back in March, I entered the City Writes short courses competition. This is a regular competition open to everyone who’s studied on one of the City Writes short courses. City offers loads of these creative writing courses throughout the year, and I’d always fancied going on one. They’re run in the evenings, so fit nicely in around a day job. In 2013 I got my act together and enrolled on their wonderful short story course. It’s probably what really sparked my interest in short stories!
Anyway, I was very pleased to hear that I’d been selected as one of the competition winners! Along with three other winners and the amazing Emma Claire Sweeney (who tutors City Writes Novel Studio course), I was invited to give a reading at City’s competition event.
So this blog has been languishing for far too long, reaching for its smelling salts and swooning at the touch of fresh air. Hopefully this will be just the pick-me-up it needs to start pulling its socks up and being a decent member of society.
So what’s been happening since the last update?
