Poetry Institute of Canada 2017 National Poetry Award - My poem wins third prize
This is quite overdue, as I have been preoccupied with other things lately. But better late than never! I found out back in March that the Poetry Institute of Canada had once again awarded me a prize for their latest anthology. I won third prize for my poem 'The Workmen' - a deliciously dark monologue from a surprise perspective.
I am so happy that I've been selected for a prize two years in a row. It's a huge boost to the confidence I have in my writing, and makes me want to hurry back to my desk and start scribbling out another macabre tale.
Thanks to everyone who had read my work, I'm hoping to publish a collection soon, if I can get myself organized. As per, I have too many pots on the stove right now, but I am ticking things off the old list lately...slowly...one little tiny task at a time... But my ultimate goal is to mix my illustration and writing into one project, so I don't want to rush such a huge venture.
If I can concentrate for 5 freakin' minutes, I can get it done... one day...
