The Mervyn Peake Awards judges have come up with their shortlists (and they are quite short, too, with only 10 entries on each) and I have entries on two of them!
Poetry is not for me (as Harriet Wheeler of the Sundays sang) this year; my entry “Rock … Water … Canvas” isn’t on the shortlist. Photography isn’t for me, either, but I didn’t enter that category, so that’s no surprise.
Both of my shortlisted entries are paintings. There’s one in the Art category and one in the Control (themed) category.
The awards ceremony and reception is to be held in July, in London.
