Iceland Writers Retreat 2022
I get a mention in this lovely piece about this amazing award I won in 2019, that was cancelled in 2020, went online in 2021 and hopefully will run in 2022! https://www.icelandwritersretreat.com/four-reasons-you-should-attend-the-iceland-writers-retreat-2/
Loft Books, London. Anthology, Issue II.
My first EVER short story in print, which is momentous in itself but doubly so because I find short stories hard to write. I am drawn much more to creative non-fiction, but I worked hard on this and it is WONDERFUL to see it in print with my name. Beautiful cover. And...my name in lights!!
