Excellent news, people! My entry has been chosen to feature in the WSA Magazine's next anthology—again (last time it was my poem,  ).
          	
          	For this edition, I had decided to divert from my usual go-to genre (Poetry) and try something different—Creative Non-fiction. And it paid off! I can't wait for the magazine's release!
          	
          	
          	P.S. I have NOT forgotten about the remaining two books I have to review!

Great news, guys! My poem "Where Heaven Meets Hell" has claimed the runner-up title in the Propitious Prompts for Poets Awards hosted by @TheHappyWriters. You can go check out my entry and perhaps the community's next edition in which you can participate. Also, congratulations to the winners!

          Happy Valentine's Day, my fellow Wattpadders/Wattpadians or whatever you call it! Anyway, there's this South African poetry competition my mom introduced me to. Here's the link to the rules: https://www.avbobpoetry.co.za/Blog/View/162?fbclid=IwAR1tUslfEQSo7aHDcqnEdBmDI2ERF_CxnQw81AJGfGA5DqvcHfw8gjzPkZg
          
          But I think I'm going to create a book that contains all the free writing contests that I can get my hands on (whether it's local, provincial, international, etc) so that you guys can also know about them and hopefully participate! Yeah, I'm going to do that, but I first have to do my homework and write my reviews... So, it would take quite a while.

Unfortunately, my poem for the Shepton Snowdrops Competition did not make it through to the finals (nor did my essay for the "My Writing Journey" Competition hosted by the Writers College—buuut that's a story for another day). I'll be honest; I would've at least liked it if my poem had made it onto the list of honorable mentions (or maybe my resentful ego is just patting me on the shoulder way too much), but hey... it is what it is. 
          
          You can read my poem on Insta (carmi_2006), but I might just add it to my INKSPIRATION book.

To those who are still waiting on their reviews from me, I apologize for my dormancy! School and international writing competitions have been taking up most of my time. Plus, if I were to be totally honest, I've gotten rather lazy—no, scratch that. I've been caught up in a reading slump for a long while now (it's been months, guys), which is concerning since I'm a reviewer for several WP communities and I actually have to read the stories properly in order to provide feedback.
          
          I don't like to stop what I've started, so this week I'm going to grind as much as possible. I really want to help out my clients and share my advice, but I'll just need enough time.
          
          Thank you for your patience thus far. I really appreciate it.❤️

          Great news, guys: My poem   has officially been published on the WSA website! https://www.writersspace.net/dissimulating-skeletons-a-poem-by-carmi-philander-south-africa/
          
          You can simply search "Carmi Philander poetry", though.
          
          P.S, my fellow Africans, WSA is hosting another competition for the April 2024 edition of their magazine. No entry fee is required! Go and check it out.
