Positive Words December 2019 Mini-Competition Results

The wry, the poignant and the inspiring – all bases covered using this month’s word – CAROL. Thank you for yet another collection of great reading, albeit tough judging decisions!

Short-listed entries came from:  Sue Clayton, A J Adams, Shirley Burgess, Sue Dodds (Up for It), Glenda Janes, Janet Mell (Christmas Meltdown), Karlene Thorne, Sue Dodds (Oh, Carol) and Denise Parker. Well done, everyone!

Sincere thanks to everyone who entered; your entries really do help to keep the magazine going and I hope, in return, your writing is inspired by the monthly challenge. The word for March is GROWING and for April ….SUNRISE. The entry fee is $2.20 in unused stamps. Entries need to be posted by the last day of the relevant month. If you would like a copy of the April  issue featuring the winning entry, and lots of other great reading, please send $6.00 in unused stamps to PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria or contact positivewordsmagazine@live.com.au or https://positivewordsmagazine.wordpress.com/ for more information about the magazine.

Thank you for all the support so far and I look forward to seeing lots more entries in my mail box 🙂

End-of-Year Competition Results

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 🙂

More Hiccups

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 🙂

 

Writing Competition

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  😦

JULY Mini-Competition Results

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!

Full results can be found here:   Positive Words JULY 2017 Mini Results

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.
