I had a nice surprise a couple of weeks ago when I received an email informing me that I had won the Writing Magazine 750-word short story competition.
This was an open-themed competition, i.e. you could write a story on any subject of your choice. My story, Memory, which won first prize, addressed the issue of dementia.
The story will be published in Writing Magazine‘s October issue, along with a critique by the Competitions Manager, Richard Bell.
