As most of you know, I dabble in a bit of writing. I tend to enjoy writing short stories as I can fit them in between mealtimes, school runs and course work. I had entered a couple of competitions this year, more as a learning curve than anything. You can imagine my complete surprise then, when I received an email to advise I had been Long Listed for the RTEGuide/Penguin competition!
I am so thrilled and feel very honoured to be included on the Long List with some amazing writers that I have met since I became a book blogger. The Long Listed writers of this particular competition are invited to a writer's workshop in Dublin next week and there is a veritable feast of writing talent on the panel. Top Irish Best Selling authors, agents, editors, publishers, and more, are on the packed timetable. It sounds like my idea of book heaven and I hope to pick up some tips to transform me into the writer I have always dreamed of becoming.......
Wish me luck !!!!!
Thanks to the RTEGuide and Penguin for running such an amazing competition and rewarding us with a fantastic writer's day.
