My poem Wisdom of the origamist has won first prize in the Bailieborough Poetry Prize – dee bap di woop, dee lap tee dooo!
I’m delighted to see that my poem Wisdom of the origamist made it into the shortlist of the Bailieborough Poetry Prize. The winner will be announced this Saturday. Go me!
I (somehow) (incredibly) completely missed a story of mine getting published a year ago. Like, I knew it was going to be out, but a lot happened around then, and for a while after, and well, I missed. it. So here it is, online at Curbside Splendor. It’s a heatwave fantasy kinda tale.

I just read a cool little short short thing that’s just up today at NANO Fiction. Go on, it’s good and it’ll take you about a minute.
Local fans cheer Armel Dagorn after hearing of the story’s publication.
A story of mine, The Brotherhood of Wednesday Afternoons, has just been published on Tin House’s blog as part of their Flash Fridays series. And I’m pretty damn proud.
I’ve had a poem long-listed in the Over the Edge competition. I’m immoderately happy about it. The short-list will be out at the end of the month, so if you need me in the meantime, I’ll be at home pacing around.
If you have a few minutes and you like clever, funny yet cute stories, you could do worse than read either or both of these stories by Simon Rich in the New Yorker. He’s a new find of mine, and I’ll definitely be looking out for more of his stuff.
