in which I am very excited
I'm very chuffed to say that my first poetry collection, 'The Hungry Ghost Festival' has been accepted for publication, and will be released later in the year. Hurray!
The collection will be published by The Rialto, which is run by the wonderful Michael Mackmin. 'The Hungry Ghost Festival' will appear as part of their Bridge pamphlet series. Hurrah!
I'm going to dance on the kitchen table, now. You're welcome to join me if you so wish.
[NB: I'm not quite sure what this picture has to do with this... except that it was a happy time, and it was taken at Beamish, in the north east, where I grew up and where a lot of the poems in the collection are set. So, there we go. Let's dance!]
