*** BIRD ROOM COMPETITION UPDATE ***
if you still want to enter the competition, the closing date is tomorrow (21st Jan), at 10 a.m. (UK time).
i am going to draw the competition entries out of something to create the ten-line poem. i don't know what the thing i am going to draw them out of is yet. it will probably be a big white bowl. i will film myself pulling out the entries and reading them, then put the video up on the blog. if i read your line, YOU ARE A WINNER!!!
about 60 people have entered the competition so far. i'm about halfway through writing up the lines of the poem on bits of paper:
Canongate sent the 'prizes' to me last week, but they never arrived. they're sending some more. hopefully they will arrive tomorrow and i can post them immediately, but there's a small chance it will be the day after or something.
