I was thrilled this week to learn that my mini-story, 'Plucked from Obscurity', has been chosen for inclusion in the Best of The Binnacle's Ultra-Short Competition 2012 anthology. The annual competition calls for submissions of prose or poetry up to 150 words. There were around 825 entries this year, so I feel honoured to have made it to the anthology, especially as the form of the publication is so innovative.
One of my pieces, 'The Case of the Geometric Pattern', appeared in the seventh competition's anthology in 2010. This was not the usual A4 or A5 stapled magazine. Each work was printed on a card about the size of a business card with the author's details on the reverse. They came in a box that could have held jewellery and made the works inside seem more precious. Of course, you can read the works in a normal magazine in whatever order you wish, but you can't shuffle them or carry your favourite in your purse or give/send one to a friend. 
At the moment, I'm working on coming up with new/visual ways to present my exhibits in The Grid's autumn show, so I can't wait to see what the Binnacle staff come up with this time.
