Shellakybooky First Past the Post!!!!

My Radio Play Wins First Prize
Yeeessss! My radio play, ‘Shellkybooky’ has won first prize in the Annual Sussex Playwright’s competition – a national comp run from Brighton. A nice cheque and presentation of play is on the way… : ) Whatever else, 2011 has been a bumper year for my writing! BTW ‘shellakybooky’ is a Waterford word for a snail… and the play centres round a Liverpudlian Irish family of expats in Budapest Hungary and their son’s secret life as a graffiti enthusiast…

Quick Boast Post

Saturday morning result:

My short story ‘A Name in a Cave’ has been shortlisted for the Wells Festival of Literature Short Story Competition. A sweet pat on the back for a Saturday morning. It is a bit cheeky of me to come here to shout about it, I know. However, wee little successes like this need to be celebrated in a writer’s career – as the rejections are far too frequent. So, please forgive a boast post when there’s reason for one. Sue xo
