£4000 of prizes to be won!

March 26th, 2010

Thanks to Simon for last month’s entertaining blog and I hope you’re all assiduously checking your toilet bowl before sitting down!  I remember having a drink outside a rather seedy bar on the outskirts of Moscow.  There were huge (well, rather large) rats scurrying around the back door and nobody at the other tables seemed to bat an eyelid.  I spent the next few days feeling queasy and checking for buboes and other symptoms of the Black Death at regular intervals.

This week I’ve been doing the final proofread of our updated ‘Profit from Your Photography’ module that we’ll be introducing to our Journalism and Creative Writing courses over the next couple of months.  It’s been written for us by Tracy Hallett, who’s not only a talented photographer but has a knack of explaining clearly and simply how to get the results you want.

Anyone seriously considering writing should obtain a copy of the Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook.  But you can now have access to a lot of the useful information contained in WAYB at their website. Obviously, they don’t give away everything for nothing!  You do have to register, but it’s free and you even get a reduction on the price of the book.

The site it well worth a visit and they currently have details of their 2010 competition with a £500 prize and a much-coveted place on an Arvon Foundation residential writing course.

Talking of which, here at Writers Bureau we’re now accepting entries for our 2010 competition.  There are two categories – poems and short stories.  Prize money totals £4000 with a rather desirable first prize of £1000 in each section.  So, why not give it a go?  You’ve got till 30th June to pen and polish your winning entry!
