Positive or Negative?

Many people have been asking if the stories, poems and articles in Positive Words magazine  and entered into the competitions have to be ‘positive’. NO!

The ‘positive’ in the title refers to the act of doing something positive with your work i.e. getting it out there, submitting it to a magazine, anthology or publisher, entering it into a competition etc. Be proud of your work and what you’ve achieved whether it’s a happy story or poem, a sad one, reflective, horror, dramatic…whatever your preferred genre.

Competition finalists and winners are selected on merit, not genre.

Over the years we’ve had a wide variety of genres in both the monthly print issue and entered in the competitions…go for it!

February Mini-competition results

Thank you once again for all the entries and a thoroughly enjoyable job in reading them to select a winner. This month I have divided the prize between two entries, one from Jenny Eddy, the other from Jayni Lai (6). Well done! The decision was a very close one with many excellent entries and interpretations.
