As of today, the cover price and subscription cost has risen a little…the last rise was nine years ago and since then postage has almost doubled and earlier this year the printer increased the monthly printing cost (very modestly for which I am very grateful!). The new cover price is $6 per issue, a six-month subscription is $35 and a twelve-month subscription $60. (Up from $5.50, $30 & $55) I hope you will all understand 🙂
Positive Words is a labour-of-love; I do not draw any wages or receive any payment. Printing and postage costs are barely (rarely!) covered each month and I hope the rise will ease the finances a little … Thanks everyone 🙂
Entries for the June Mini competition need to be posted by 30 June 2017.

Our next major competition is now open. You can find details and an entry form here Entry form I hope you will all support this competition – Thank you!
The last few months have been particularly difficult after a run of ‘hiccups’ over the past three years. (I hope I didn’t break a mirror, have a black cat walk in my path or something like that in case there’s still four years to go!!) The situation is still causing terrible distractions and much pain for some close to me but, as always, I am hopeful there is an end in site.
Some things had to give, including this blog, but I will be endeavouring to post regular updates once again.
Thank you to all who know something of the situation and have contacted me with kind messages…they all mean so much and really do help 🙂
One day I will write about it all but for now I have to be careful as it involves others in a precarious situation. Truth is most definitely stranger than fiction; I couldn’t possibly dream up the events that have taken place!
I am in the process of notifying winners, place-getters and entrants of the results from the recent Positive Words Short Story & Poetry Competition and will post them here later today.
Thank you everyone!
Today is the last day entries can be posted for the Positive Words Short Story & Poetry Competition 2017. Slip them into a post box before midnight and they will be eligible – I realize the postmarks may end up saying tomorrow’s date as there is limited collection on Sundays…but that is fine 🙂
Thank you everyone for the support!
My apologies for the lack of updates on the blog – a few ‘hiccups’ over the past few months distracted me but I am catching up again 🙂
