If anyone is having trouble downloading or printing the entry form for the Positive Words End-of-year Short Story & Poetry Competition you can send your entry with a cover sheet instead.
Thank you for all the support so far and I look forward to seeing lots more entries in my mail box 🙂
Entries need to be posted by 31 October. It doesn’t matter if they don’t arrive by that date – mail delivery is a tad unreliable so as long as you post by 31 October your entry/entries will be included.
Bear in mind that I am not very Facebook savvy but I have started a page for Positive Words magazine. Hopefully, I will be able to post information, competition results etc and reach more writers.
Check it out and let me know what you think 🙂
Sincere thanks to everyone who entered the Positive Words 2018 Short Story & Poetry Competition. Congratulations to the winners, place-getters, short-listed entries and everyone else for the excellent and inspiring efforts.
Here are the results: Results
I hope you will all support future competitions. Our next major competition is the Positive Words 2018 End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry Competition: Entry form
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 🙂
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 🙂
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 😦
Another BIG thank you for your entries this month 🙂
The prize has been divided between to entrants/entries, one from Peter J Lingard, the other from Jan Stringer. Congratulations!

I look forward to lots of entries in the October mini-competition. The word is BUILDING (see details under competitions at the top of the page) and need to be posted by 31 October.
