IRISH BLOG AWARDS FINALIST!!


I just found out that Women Rule Writer has made the finals in the Irish Blog Awards in the Best Arts & Culture Blog category. Wow!

Huge thanks to my nominators (is that a real word?!) and to the judges who've finalised me along with

Looking forward now to the night out on the 27th which, handily, is in Galway - a mere 40 minute spin away on the new M6. My blog looks homemade compared to my fellow nominees ones which are all very swish and spanky. But, anyway...best of luck to us all!

I'm heading t'other way up the M6 tomorrow to go to Roscommon to read and to attend the Hanna Greally Award prize-giving. I judged the poetry end of the comp and it was a great pleasure. I love my winners' poems -  they have real heart and craft. Congrats all.

2009 was great, B, and now things are flying along this year. I don't take any of it for granted.
