Through to the Last Round!

I’m so excited…today I found out that my short memoir, The Sea-Bright Child, has been shortlisted for the Fish Publishing Short Memoir Competition! I don’t know how many entries there were in total, but I am through to the final 81. Now they will go to author Molly McCloskey to be read and judged. The best ten will be published in the annual Fish Anthology. Results will be announced on April 1st, so please keep everything crossed for me!

I entered the competition last year, and my entry also made it onto the shortlist. It would be wonderful  to make it into the top ten this year! Well, only another couple of weeks to wait. Trouble is, I’ve never been much good at waiting…

UPDATE:  I got short-listed three times in three consecutive years for the short memoir competition, and rightly or wrongly, decided to leave it be for a while. I needed time to work out why it was missing the mark each time. I’ll get there one day…
