Dear Kate,

You've done it again! Last year you pointed me towards the IYeats contest and my poem was placed as "commendable." This year you told us of the Dermet Healy contest, I entered and yesterday I was informed my poem has been shorlisted. Final results will be announced Aug. 27.
Thank you again for this informative blog!

I just bought you another cup of coffee. It's the very least I could do!
