Yes, that’s a chocolate trophy as well as a glass one. Still grinning away and can’t quite believe it! Had a great time during the evening and met lots of interesting people.
I spent most of the evening chatting away with members from the Reading Writers’ Group, a long-running group who have just released a new anthology Another Light Raid which was nominated for the NAWG awards. You can buy a copy in paper format (or search here for electronic versions) . . .
After the gala dinner we moved into a side room for the After Dinner Sparkles, a series of poems and short performance pieces which had everyone chuckling and nodding their heads. Fantastic evening. Looking forward to next year!
