Well, I have recovered a little. I was delighted at my award of the Poetry Ireland Tyrone Guthrie Centre Mid Career Bursary. It is a great honour and I am especially pleased that it comes at this time for me. I am also delighted to be in the company Rachael Hegarty and Dolores Stewart. Congratulations to them also! I will spend a week later on this year at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre working on poems towards my next poetry collection.
I am also pleased to have got word from Skylight 47 that my poem “Soothed” is forthcoming in Issue 12 to be launched in Galway in September. Many thanks to the editors.
