Ink, Sweat & Tears Poem of the Month list

Very excited to announce (ok, show off) that one of my poems called Dead Spit has been shortlisted down to 6 in Poem of the Month by Ink, Sweat & Tears ( thanks editors). You can vote for whichever one you choose here:

Of course, I’d be delighted if you happen to vote for Dead Spit. Don’t feel under any pressure!

Strange how this has happened as Dead Spit was written very quickly though the title took longer to arrive. It was rejected by several magazines before I, S & T took it up and, unusually, I barely changed a thing between rejections as this is how it fell on to the page and how it had to remain. I’d all but given up on it so am surprised. It shows that one shouldn’t give up, especially not on these poems that come like a bolt of lightning!
