First… Then… wins award

In News on December 13, 2013 at 9:45 am

I’m pleased to announce that last night First… Then…, the book of this blog, won the ACT Writing and Publishing Awards Poetry category, for books published in 2012. (The ACT is the Australian Capital Territory, where I live in Australia). Very happy !

The judges’ comments were : “[First…Then… is an] emotionally brave and truthful testimony of raising a child with autism, elegant poems across a range of diverse styles, unashamedly feminine, humorous and lively”

On this blog you can browse some of the poems in the book. If you like what you see, why not buy it ? A great Christmas / Holiday season present for someone you know who has autism in their life…
