"Beyond the Blind" selected as Highly Commended for the Bridport. It was a privilege to be in the presence of judges Jane Rogers (Short Story), Jane Feaver (Novel) and Roger Mc Gough (Poetry). I had a thoroughly good time meeting other winners and enjoying excerpts read from the first, second and third placed entries. With over 4,500 entries for the short story alone, the odds were certainly agaisnt us. Thank you to the super-friendly organisers, especially Kate Wilson. Copies of the anthology may be purchased here.
