Not such new news – GMGA New Talent Finalist 2012

Forget tomorrow’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year, I’ve just realised I haven’t yet posted anything on here about this website’s exciting placing as a finalist in the Garden Media Guild Awards New Talent category.


New talent!!! Of course, it’s not a normal talent contest – I didn’t have to sing or tap dance (luckily) – but I’m delighted to have been on the list next to such wonderful writers as Debora Robertson who was there for her book Gifts from the Garden, (and very good it is too, highly recommended) and Annie Guilfoyle.

And also to have discovered the winner, Rachel Mason Dentinger – an excellent article by here in Kew Gardens Magazine can be found here.

I can’t tell you how chuffed I am. Sometimes I think all bloggers wonder if anyone is actually reading them, and this has given me a real boost to carry on visiting and posting new poems next year.

  1. Congratulations – chuffed is totally the right word 🙂 It’s an interesting juxtaposition you have there – I’m having to watch SPOTY for writing purposes tomorrow night!
