Positive Words AUGUST 2015 Mini-Competition Results
The entries this month were mixed with lots of funny tales and poems but also some very sad stories and poems about emptiness. Fortunately, no EMPTY pages! I laughed and cried and eventually divided the prize between two entries from Martin Jon Porter and K Robinson. Congratulations!
Short-listed entries came from: Carol Reynolds, Amanda Hemmings (No1), Susan Steedman, Janet Mell, Shirley Burgess, Debra Tidball (Water Works), Yvonne Deering (broken eggshell), Zoe Downing, Paul Unger, Katie Bingham & Colleen Russell. Well done, everyone!
