Short Story & Poetry Competition Results

My sincere thanks for entering the Positive Words Short Story & Poetry Competition 2013. Your support helps to keep Positive Words magazine, a valuable opportunity for publication for more than ten years, viable. I hope you will continue to enter the competitions and consider subscription. Submissions to the monthly issues are always welcome but must be in hard copy.

The short-list is intended to encourage the writers who have come very close to the main prizes. Some years ago, I attended a competition presentation where I was told my entry had only narrowly missed out and it gave me enormous encouragement. Often we have no idea how our entries fared and it has always been my intention to reveal the judges’ short-list to encourage my fellow writers.

The overall standard of entries was excellent and there were many more close contenders. Entries need to be carefully checked for typos, spelling and grammatical errors as sometimes these make the difference between two close entries.

Thanks again to all entrants. You can find the results here: Results

For a copy of the July issue featuring the winning entries (First & Second), please send $5.50 in unused stamps to PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria.

And…if you are inspired to enter the next competition you can find the entry form and details here : End-of-year entry form-2013


Today’s prompt…

No, it wasn’t me but someone out there is $10,000 richer 🙂 That’s the kind of call I’d like to get in the morning but usually I get a caller asking for the local doctor, who apparently had our number before us! Perhaps tomorrow morning I should enter…

NaNoWriMo Update: Yesterday proved to be another good writing day and I added well over the target number of words. I’ve been trying to do that bit extra to give myself a little leeway in case of the unexpected but now two days ahead…I don’t want to give up my extra. I see that finish line ahead and even though I know my story will take at least 20,000 words more than the NaNo target, I’m hoping I’ll get it all done before Christmas. My total stands at 37,160 and although I don’t have as many ideas ready this morning, I’m sure something will inspire me. Failing that I might have to do housework!
