I can hardly believe it, but in September I'm off to Limnisa for a writing retreat. I won a short story competition run by the retreat, and my 'You're Next' scooped this lovely reward...
I've been looking longingly at images of Limnisa for over a year (and entered their competition last year too). It's on the peninsula of Methana in Greece, and the combination of blue skies, blue sea, serene hammocks, homecooked food just looked divine.
Resolve: to enter more writing competitions. It's easy to feel discouraged if you don't succeed, but it's worth trying. Next up: applications for a Hawthornden Fellowship and a Hedgebrook residency.
Wish me luck!
