Our very own Val has just learned that she’s won second prize in the Isle of Ely Arts Festival Short Story Competition. The brief was to produce a 500-word unpublished story inspired by Shakespeare.
What tremendous news. Val’s special interest is in writing plays and sketches (we’ve seen them performed, they’re great), but she’s also a knowledgeable fan of Shakespeare and a talented short story writer. Small wonder she did so well.
A hit. A palpable hit! (With apologies for using a quote from Hamlet, rather than Othello, the play which inspired her entry)
