I am pleased to say that January’s winner, with her very authentic take on the writing prompt inspired by Christina Rossetti’s ‘In the bleak midwinter’, is lassfromlancashire.  A well deserved win and, once I have liaised with her, I will get back to you with the writing prompt for February.  (Scary that we are into February already – where did January go??)

And July’s winner is………………

wiinners cup

Well, we have a bit of a problem…  For the first time since I have been running these mini competitions we have a draw, with Jane Dougherty and Jan Strickland both polling the same amount of votes.

As you may know, usually the winner is entitled to set the writing prompt for the next monthly competition, but we could have a fight on our hands! 😉

Jane and Jan – do you have any thoughts or suggestions?  Perhaps one of you could set the overall theme and the other come up with some key words or phrases or a beginning or ending or similar?

Have to admit, I didn’t have a contingency in the event of a tied vote. As such, please leave it with me and I will post the next prompt as soon as we have worked something out! 🙂

In the meantime, congratulations to you both.

 

And June’s winner is………………

New Writing Prompt for February – Waiting For News

waiting

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!! :)))
