Thanks to those of you who’ve already submitted a story or two to our 2017 Short Story Competition. And to those of you who haven’t yet entered, a wonderful way to spend the coming weekend would be writing a winning story, or, if you have one that you prepared earlier, honing and editing it to make it your best ever. In other words get writing! I’m looking forward to an avalanche of entries in the coming weeks. You have until November 30th but why wait until the deadline? Look at our competition page for more information and you can find a story written by our judge, Eileen Merriman, in our current on-line issue.
