Libraries Week

October 11th, 2019

This week (7th to 12th October) is Libraries Week and the theme this year is Celebrating Libraries in a Digital World. I think that anything that raises the profile of libraries, supports their work and brings the public’s attention to them is great.

Also, I really value the fact that I can borrow books from the library direct to my Kindle if I don’t have time to pop in, or I run out of reading matter in the middle of the night.

On their site they say: Libraries Week 2019 will celebrate and explore how libraries are engaging communities through technology, building digital skills and confidence, encouraging digital participation and inclusion, supporting health, wellbeing and education and supporting local business and enterprise.

The Rising Price of Competition Entries

December 1st, 2017

As you know, our Flash Fiction Competition closed for entries yesterday, so I was going to suggest some alternative competitions that you might like to enter until we get our next one going.

Fish Publishing  are currently running a series of competitions (with closing dates ranging from 31st January to 31st March). These include a Short Memoir Prize (4000 words), a Flash Fiction Prize (300 words) and a Poetry Prize (300 words) but the fees range from 14 Euros to 16 Euros per entry  – more if you enter online. The prizes are great but it’s still a lot of money! Read the rest of this entry »
