We have three successes for you so far in February. The first involves short stories.
Angela Petch has won the monthly short story of 800 words or less for PRIMA magazine, for the May issue to be available in April.
Her story is called “A fresh start” and its main theme is about rekindling the relationship between parents once the children have flown the nest. It also touches on homelessness.
Angela says “I earned £100 but the prize for me was to be recognised and published. When I heard today that the story had gone to the illustrators, I felt quite excited.”
The second prize was for the WOW Page that appears monthly in the freebie magazine: “Here and Now”, which is distributed in our part of Sussex.
The brief was to write 300 words, a modern take on a traditional tale. Her story is called Beauty and the Beast and is a glimpse at an African immigrant who flees for Europe.
The second success is that after three years of hard work, Jane Weymouth, has published her novel, Eliza Stone, as an E-Book. She would like some reviews, folks.
