Writing competition, reviews and spooky happenings
I am delighted to be one of the judges for the wonderful Eltham Arts writing competition called 'Wall' below are the details:
A short story and poetry creative writing challenge. This will be on the theme of WALLS. This is an exciting topic which encourages people to think about the walls around them and be inspired to express themselves creatively in prose or poetry. It may be a wall on a house or historic building, a wall dividing cultures or a personal wall within which inspires you to write. A great opportunity for all ages to be involved .
Workshops are being planned to support this project and encourage creative writing.Planned exhibition/awards/celebratory event on World Book Night 23rd April 2018 at Eltham library. Also planned that a selection will published in a book of the same name.
This has been launched with a closing date of end February 2018
There are leaflets in Eltham Centre and New Eltham libraries and elsewhere . You can also find information on this website .
All ages (and all abilities) are encouraged to join in.
I will also be attending the awards ceremony on World Book Night at Eltham Library on 23rd April. Good luck!
In other news, here is a hand written review of 'A Squirrel's Tail', from Jacob, aged 10, all the way from New Zealand. I love his edits!
