Short Story Results Update and Poetry 2020 Launch

We have our winners! Entrants of the Short Story competition will be glad to know that we have the final list and are contacting them now. Keep an eye on your emails!
The Awards night with Dr Anna Maddison is going ahead, 05/03 8-10pm and general availability of results will be occurring on here and elsewhere thereafter.

We at SWC are sadly compelled to point out to some of our entrants this year that we are a small enthusiast group and sometimes delays happen. Certain people have been a bit overkeen and almost fell afoul of the Rules. We appreciate every writer wants to be recognised, but extenuating circumstances do occur and we have appreciated the patience of the majority.

In other news, out 2020 Poetry competition is in mid-launch, go have a look at the Competitions page to get ahead of the game and send your entries before the everyone hears about it!

Upcoming Short Story Results

Hello fellow writers! Just to let you know that due to the chief judge’s busy schedule, the Awards Evening for the Short Story 2019 competition has been temporarily postponed.

We thank you for your patience, and to those of you absolutely dying to find out the results, unfortunately you will still have to wait until after the main winners know, as that would otherwise be terribly unfair.

We at SWC understand your frustration, and we will post an update as soon as is sensible.

New Year Resolution Night – 30th Jan

Been wanting to do more writing? Promised yourself that you will? Join SWC as we encourage you to put pen to paper, in a series of interesting and engaging activities and talks. Each is geared toward helping you produce the opus that you always keep meaning to get around to, with fine like-minded company to keep you going.

All welcome, regardless of ability level or experience.

Activities will include:
Where to Start?
Basic Planning
Poetry or Prose?
What’s the Next Bit?
…and many others.
