We Have Our Winners! (and Poetry 2022)

The winners for the 2021 Short Story competition have been announced, thanks to our most excellent chief judge, Spencer Leigh.

There will be a slight delay in putting the judge’s report and the winning entries up on this website due to some background issues, however, we thank all of our entrants for bravely putting their work out there and hope that you all have a fruitful 2022.

Speaking of which, the Poetry 2022 competition is ripe and launching soon. We are finalising the details so that the poets of the land can share their verses and pit their words against all comers. Should be a fun competition.

Thank you for your patience, updates to come soon.

New Year, New Events!

Happy New Year!

Our first meeting back of 2022 is this week, 06/01/22, 8pm. We are keeping on with our hybrid meetings so let us know if you want the Zoom link or if you would like to join us in person.

13/01 is our Resolution Night! Did you promise yourself you would do more writing this year? This is the evening for you, with plenty of inspiring prompt-based activities and useful tips to get your pen moving.

20/01 is the Short Story Awards night with guest judge Spencer Leigh. The results will be announced and we will hear some valuable insight and hopefully meet several of the winners.


Poetry 2021 judgement and winners are now available to read and enjoy on the Comp Results link (on the right unless you are on mobile).

Short Story 2021 judge has been confirmed and will launch very soon! We look forward to see what people will come up with this year…
