Maynah Lewis Competition
This year's Maynah Lewis short story competition was for a crime story in 1600 words. We were delighted to welcome award-winning crime writer (and ex Wirral Writers member) Martin Edwards along to judge the competition and present the cup. In addition to judging the competition he also gave us a interesting insight into the life of a successful crime writer. Here's a link to his fascinating blog for more information about his writing.
So, without further ado, this year's winner: yours truly, Mike Wood.
Second place, one of our newest members, Trevor Noble
Here's the presentation
And of course the timing of the competition is such that we can each enter our stories into the Writing Magazine July competition.
Here's the address:
Competitions Department (Crime Story)
Warner's Group Publications
Entries to arrive by 14 August
Some more rules: Entries must be typed, double spaced, on A4. There should be a front page with name, address, daytime telephone and (if poss) email address - also story title and word count.
And I've just noticed that there is an entry form. Photocopies are accepted so if you need one let me know and I'll email a copy to you, or I'll bring one to Brook Meadow if you are coming.
