Poetry: Gratuitous self-promotion alert
In that I was one of the runners up in the 2011 Cardiff International Poetry Competition. The award ceremony featured a lovely, if windswept, open top bus tour around Cardiff, followed by dinner at Harry Ramsdens. And, yes, the cheque has already been spent.
The other seven poems are marvels, and well worth your time. And for those who might be interested, mine was inspired by Richard Brautigan, and especially this New York Times blog post about him.
