A week or so ago I mentioned that I had some exciting news about a short story hit at a competition.
Well I've just received the confirmation I was waiting for...
My short story "SuperEd" was awarded joint first prize in the Sedbergh Festival of Books and Drama 2007 short story competition and will be broadcast on BBC Radio Cumbria at the end of August when the festival takes place. The theme for the competition was 'freedom', written in under 1,000 words.
My first radio broadcast! And a BBC radio station no less! I'm so excited.
As I live so far away I won't be able to read out the story myself but it will be read out by a very eloquent man called Stuart Manger. Hopefully I'll be able to listen to the story over t'internet or the 'listen again' function. I'll let you know the details nearer the time if you'd like to listen too.
If you live in or near Cumbria and love books and drama I suggest you immediately go along to the Sedbergh Festival website (linked above) and check out what's on.
