Thank you everyone for the much appreciated support :)

End-of-Year Competition

I’ve had a few emails asking if there is a theme for the Positive Words End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry Competition.

No…there is no theme for this competition :) Let your imagination run wild :)

Others have asked if it’s ok to send more entries…YES, as many as you like! If there isn’t enough space on the entry form use a second one, put the details on the back or use a cover sheet. All are accepted :)

And. . . font, print, spacing etc. Use your favourite, there are no rules. Double or 1.5 spacing makes for easier reading for judges but also uses more paper so if you prefer single spacing, that’s fine!

Please ask if there is anything else you would like to know :)

And . . . thank you very much for supporting the competition. Every entry helps to keep Positive Words magazine and a great opportunity for publication alive.

Thank you to everyone who supported this competition.
