Welcome to my contribution to today's CTST. Want to join in and celebrate with us? Hop over to Lexa's blog here and sign up.
Today I'm celebrating the achievements of others, following my attendance at the HE Bates Short Story Writing Competition prize-giving ceremony yesterday evening. The top three stories were amazing and all worth winners; stories will appear on the competition website shortly. It was a lovely evening and I met some very interesting people. (If you want to be a writer, hang out with writers.)
I've only managed one submission this week, but I did hear that I've won a poetry competition. If I remember, I'll let you know more when it is announced. It's nothing fancy, but a real first for me.
I'd also like to celebrate the work of the team at Kettering Arts Centre. After hosting Tiff Stevenson last weekend, we have Josie Long to look forward to this evening.
What are you all celebrating?
Wow - that sounds great that you've won a poetry competition. It seems like Kettering has really got time for the Arts which is so good as many places are having their funding cut at the moment. Have a great week :)ReplyDelete

Yes, we're very lucky. There is a lot of artistic talent around, on and off the stage.Delete
OMG - a poetry competition! That's awesome coz poetry is hard. I consider myself so lucky to be in the writers' community, especially with the nightmare-ish situation in the US. It helps that 90% of writers are firmly against Trump.ReplyDelete
Let's hope the pen really is mightier than the sword, Lexa.Delete
Well done for doing so well in the poetry competition I'm impressed by anyone who can write poetry.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Wendy. Poetry is a new venture for me; until now I've only managed the occasional limerick!Delete
