Now don’t forget that Page Seventeen is currently open for submissions until June 30 so check the submission/competition guidelines carefully…
I am fortunate enough to be judging the poetry competition this year, so I’m looking forward to reading some strong poems.
Also, Express Media in partnership with the Emerging Writers Festival, is presenting a mini workshop series in May. I’ll be running a workshop on performance poetry, alongside Lisa Dempster (Independent Publishing) and Ben Eltham (pitching)
And make sure to check out Lisa Dempster’s site, Unwakeable. At moment you’ll find pictures of her little dog dressed as Zorro. Just without the mask.
Oh and I’m on a panel for the Emerging Writers Festival too…

Hosted by Susan Hayes
