Well, bloody Hell …

“Dear *******,

Recently you submitted a poem to our Poetry Rivals 2012 competition and I’m pleased to announce that your poem, Coma, has been accepted for publication.

For this exciting competition, poets were invited to show off their creativity by writing a poem in the style and theme of their choice. After weeks of intensive selection, our team of editors have collected the successful poems together in Poetry Rivals’ poetry anthologies. Your work will be featured in Poetry Rivals’ Collection 2012 – Strokes of Inspiration – a collection of poems from adult writers.

As a contributor to Strokes, you now have the chance to be selected as one of the top 100 poets in the competition. Our editors will go on to pick the top 100 poems from across the series … winners will then be invited to a prestigious poetry slam to perform their poem in front of an expert panel of judges and a live audience. The overall winner from the over 18’s category will win either £1,000 or a publishing contract with Bonacia Ltd, the UK’s largest publisher of new poetry!”

To say I’m excited, would be a little scrape of an understatement.

For once, Royal Fail delivered something nice to my door. I’d forgotten about that entry, too 😛

Well, on the off chance Coma is selected for a public reading, I won’t have time for stage fright – it’s only 12 lines long.
