Prize Winning Poetry

Yahoo – I’m doing the writer’s jig again and again and again.

I just received notification this morning that I have won first prize in a Literary Competition. It was for a suite of poems in sonnet form and was entered in the Traditional Rhyming Poetry section. The competition was conducted by Freexpression magazine here in Australia, though entries were received from a number of countries.

It was hard work – a labour of love I guess. But getting recognition like this is very encouraging, especially seeing some of the place getters are frequent competition winners.

And the cash prize is very nice.

Check out some of my poetry here.

Good writing.
