Thank you to Jane Dougherty who, as winner of last month’s mini competition, has set the writing prompt for February as, ‘Waiting For News‘. Jane has suggested that this could be any kind of anxiety from waiting in a hospital, for news of a death or a birth, for news from a war front, of a lost child, for good news or bad. I think that gives us all good scope to interpret the prompt in many different ways and I look forward to reading the entries that come in.
As such, I invite you to submit either a piece of flash fiction of under 500 words or a poem on the theme on the designated competition page.
Last entry date for this month is 24th of February and then people have between then and the end of the month to vote for their favourite. The next competition will start at the beginning of March in the usual way, with the winner of this month setting the next writing prompt.
Once again, thank you in advance to all taking part and good luck! (I’m waiting to see your submissions… (sorry!! ))
