[Updated 15 August 2018: At the time this post was written in 2016, the Melita Hume Prize was free to enter. In 2018 there is now a submission charge. Please note that at the time Leilanie Stewart was longlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2014, and Joseph Robert longlisted for the Melita Hume Prize in 2015, there were no submission fees to enter.]

Now that my Tribunal Hearing is over, I feel that I can finally try to start piecing my life back together after a nightmarish year. Strange how destructive personal issues can knock the creativity out of one’s soul and kill inspiration. But here’s to the future!

To celebrate all things literary for 2016, here is a competition link for the Melita Hume prize, which is how I got my poetry pamphlet, A Model Archaeologist published. Enjoy!
