"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

'No' word from Southword

Dear Peter Goulding,
Thank you for sending us your work. We appreciate the chance to read it. Unfortunately, the piece was not successful at this time.
Best wishes.

Okay, a little disappointed here, mainly because I heard that Kate Dempsey got her PFO from Southword (and Stinging Fly) weeks ago and, as I hadn't heard, I was secretly hoping I was in.

But it was not to be and five more poems are now freed up.

And I still haven't heard from Stinging Fly!


  1. Got a PFO from Poetry London today. Thanks for sharing the gloom

  2. I am still in awe of your submitting zeal, whatever the result. I was very pleased I managed to get one poem off to the Wigtown competition. Mind, at £8, not that pleased.

    There is always tomorrow. Gnomic.

  3. Hi Kate - what I'm here for. Sorry!
    Titus - yes, I didn't do Wigtown for that very reason. Ouch!
