I’m very proud to announce that my book Flying High! Discover the poetry in British birds has been shortlisted for the York Culture Awards 2017 in the ‘Excellence in Writing’ category.
The York Culture Awards ‘celebrate excellence in the arts and culture sector and reward outstanding innovation, creativity and quality …’ And looking through the list of finalists makes you realise just what a vibrant arts and culture scene we have here in York. Many talented people! It’s a privilege to be among their number.
The York Culture Awards’ aim is: ‘by showcasing the city’s cultural uniqueness and diversity … to ultimately make culture more accessible to everyone and to encourage more people to take part.’
Amen to that!
I’m looking forward to meeting the other finalists at the award ceremony, which takes place in York Minster next month.
Meanwhile, thank you to everyone involved in the publication of my Flying High! book.
