My Story, Hear That Song, was a semi-finalist in Flatmancrooked's Prize For Excellent Writing Done During a Period of Great Fiscal Renewal. Love that title. Anyway, it's up on the site for a week as their Feature article. Woo-hoo!
Also, for anyone who didn't get to see Claire Urwin's play, No Wonder, at the Manchester Library Theatre, you totally missed out. It was funny and brutal and sad, beautifully produced, and, I think, should have run for weeks. Claire did my MA last year (in the poetry strand, I believe), so she's set the standard very high.
