I have to admit that I spent the morning watching my emails for news of the Melita Hume Prize, and 2015 sees two winners! Big congratulations to Maria Apichella and Tony Chan. I am really looking forward to reading their collections next year!
It was lovely to be mentioned by this year's judge, Tony Martinez De Las Rivas in his citation, which you can read here.
Tomorrow night I'm reading from my shortlisted manuscript at the Caves, Bears & Pages event at The Ink Factory, Dublin.
