I’ve just posted the March issues and am now getting the April copy ready. It’s not too late (if you post ASAP) to send stories and poems relating to ANZAC DAY. Please send hard copy to The Editor, Sandra James, Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria. Full submission details are at the top of the page.

And next . . . I’ll be looking for Mother’s Day stories and poems for the May issue 🙂

Of course, work on any theme is always welcome at any time!

Long time no post!

It’s been a busy few weeks, all good but I’ve neglected the blog 😦

After a wonderful visit from my son Nathaniel, daughter-in-law Chau and four-year-old grandson Jackie (from Queensland), the house seems eerily quiet again and my little shadow has disappeared from my side. They’ll be back!

I began this week aiming to catch up but it hasn’t all gone as planned with several unexpected detours, again all good but further delaying my good intentions. The week has flown but the piles on my desk are finally going down and the March issues are all in their envelopes and ready to post.

If anyone would like a copy of the March issue, I have a few extra copies . . . just send $5.50 (cheque, money order, the equivalent in unused stamps or contact me for direct deposit details) to Sandra James, Editor Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523 Victoria. Or for a back/sample copy, send $3 in unused stamps, or 3 copies for $6 🙂

Subscriptions are: $30 for six months or $55 for twelve months.

Submissions are always welcome from both experienced and new writers . . . send hard copy to the above address. I look forward to hearing from you 🙂

Sincere thanks to everyone who entered the Positive Words magazine End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry Competition 2015. Congratulations to the worthy winners and to everyone for their excellent efforts. The competition was well supported, especially the poetry section, and the standard was high.
