Today is your last chance to conjure up and submit a Winter’s Tale to win a fantastic prize and publication in the Isle of Wight County Press.
Earlier this month there was an avalanche of entries from Nodehill Middle School: Pupil Representative, Scott Purdue, delivered a total of 31 entries to Margaret Norris at Books2Love.
Scott was last year’s winner of the Southampton Stadium Tickets and enjoyed the experience so much he encouraged all his friends to enter this year!
Readers may remember the article we published (September 8th) Born To Write A Wight Winter’s Tale advertising the competition.
The 2010 seasonal short story competition is organised by the Wight Fair Writers Circle, for Island’s writers. Who were looking for winning entries for the best Winter’s tale from adults and children. This year they are supporting charities such as; the Barely Born Appeal along with the MS Society and Love Russia.
The writing competition closes today, and on the 21st December there will be a ceremony at the New Church Reception Rooms, Castlehold, Newport to announce the winners.
On the night there will be four famous authors there for the people attending to chat to and buy signed books if they wish. These authors include, Pauline Rowson (who is travelling from the mainland for the event), Wendy K Harris, Diana Kimpton and Pat Thornborough.
There is a fantastic list of prizes donated by local businesses. Southampton and Portsmouth Football Clubs have also promised to send their mascots to the presentation ceremony which should be fun for us all!
On the evening, there will be FREE seasonal snacks, non alcoholic mulled wine and juice available. There is free car park behind the church in Drill Hall Road and a disabled access to the building. The rooms will be open from 6pm.
