Wimborne Writing Group had a delicious Christmas Lunch last Wednesday at No. 9 in Wimborne. We were made very welcome at this cosy and stylish restaurant and it was a great way to end our year of writing together.
We’ve had many successes in 2012: Beryl’s short story was published this month in ‘That’s Life’ in Oz; Chris won a prize for his play and also 1st prize for his poem in the Christchurch Festival competition; Penny’s writing and Ruth’s poem were commended in the same competition; Ruth also had a piece of short fiction accepted for publication in an animal stories anthology; Gail won a 1st prize at Winchester Writers’ Conference and publication for her collection. We’ve had many other successes, too, not least being that everyone in the group has produced excellent pieces of writing during 2012. This is a fantastic achievement.
We are raring to get going on more writing in 2013. Some of us are entering Gullivers Bookshop Word Crunch short story competition. This is for a short story of maximum 500 words. The cost of entry is £4 and the deadline is 31st January 2013.
