Writers Retreat RSS
For the second year running I’d won second prize at the Terry Hetherington Young Writers Award, open to all authors under 30 born, living or working in Wales. I thought by now I understood the way things would unfold. The competition anthology, Cheval 11, would be launched at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea. I’d do a reading, get a cheque, a bottle of wine and a grinning photo in the Western Mail. It was awesome last year, and I was looking forward to doing it again.
