Long-Listed for Uniquely Dublin

Wooop! Woooop! A poem I wrote has been long listed, in the Uniquely Dublin Competition, and the feeling is incredible. I won my first ever sports competition only two weeks ago. (I didn’t play team sports as a child, just catch) And that feeling of being good at a sport was pretty cool, but knowing a poem I wrote is long-listed is surreal.  A swelling rose up in my stomach, and it wasn’t acid or hunger!

Writing is fun but it’s work and having something you put down on paper is going to be on exhibition is so worth it. 

More than 2,000 people entered, so there is a lot of love for Dublin. I am not sure how many were long-listed, but I will find out.


They have chosen two poems for the written word section and they are open to public voting now.


My  work, along with the other best long-listed entrants will be part of an exhibition of some of the best entries.

The exhibition takes place in the Little Museum of Dublin at 15 St. Stephen’s Green, and is open from this weekend, Saturday 5th April 2013. 


I may even pop up and have a look see.
