End-of-Year Competition Results

My apologies for the late posting of results. Amongst the chaos during our house repairs I’m afraid quite a few things have been delayed or neglected but the house is finally back to its old self and I am endeavouring to unpack all the boxes that were hastily stowed last year and get back to some kind of order!

Please find the results here : Results

And…for those who want to enter the next competition please find an entry form here: Entry form Cover sheets are also accepted in lieu of an entry form 🙂 Entries need to be posted by 23 April, not necessarily received by then to allow for the sometimes erratic postal delivery 🙂

Thank you everyone 🙂

More Hiccups

Apologies to everyone waiting for the competition results and/or latest magazines. First the flash flood and last week I broke my ankle, followed by bad reactions to pain medication which has slowed me down a little. Just a little! The results will be posted in the next couple of days and any remaining magazines posted. Thanks everyone for your understanding 🙂

I can’t drive as it’s my right foot so have to wait until someone drives me or at least takes the mail. And…at last I have builders here starting on the repairs to our flood damaged house. Still a way to go but I’m sure by the time my ankle heals it will be a distant memory 🙂

I’m feeling much better than I did this time last week and am once again making up for lost time, all with the background hammering, sawing and banging 🙂

 

Writing Competition

Don’t forget the Positive Words End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry competition if you haven’t already entered!   Entry form

Entries need to be mailed by 31 October. It doesn’t matter if they don’t arrive by then; I am well aware of how unreliable Australia Post can be so as long as you mail by 31 October the postmark will reflect that and it won’t matter if there is a delay 🙂

Two weeks ago I mailed the October magazines over two days from the same PO. One arrived in WA several days before another made it to Bendigo (50kms from here!). And, some South Australian subscribers received theirs (in the same town) well over a week apart although they would have been next to each other in the pile I took to the PO  😦

September Mini-competition

Just a reminder  – entries for the September Mini-competition featuring the word COACH need to be posted by 30 September (Saturday)

Details here: mini themes 2017

Thank you everyone for the support 🙂

Fillers Wanted :)

The September issue is with the printer, a great issue filled with diverse themes, topics and styles. Plenty to interest everyone 🙂

Now I’m looking for ‘fillers’ (and longer poems, stories and articles) for upcoming issues. This issue will be number 179 since the first issue of Positive Words magazine in 2002 and I’m still amazed at the amount of little spaces each month. All submissions are always appreciated and I’m hoping for lots in the Haiku, Limerick, very-short-poem size as well as micro or flash fiction. Hard copy, snail mail…send to Sandra James, Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote Victoria 3523. Thanks 🙂

And don’t forget the mini-competition for August (word for the month BASKET) needs to be posted by 31 August. mini themes 2017
