  1. Please could Norwich Writers’ Circle draw to your members’ attention our new Short Story Competition with a Mustard theme! Full details at norwichwriters.wordpress.com under the Competitions tab! £500 to be won… deadlines July 2015. Thanks…

    • Hi Phyllida – nice to hear from another writing group!

      I’ve posted your information under ‘Why enter a short story competition”, as there’s much more chance of it being read there than on our ‘About’ page. But that means that automatic links to your details don’t work, so you may want to comment on my comment, if that makes sense?

      Good luck with the book.
