. . . So, naturally, you should be doing more writing.
A couple of weeks ago we had good fun in the beginners’ classes spooking each other by writing some ghost stories for Halloween. Some students were surprised at the darkness of their imaginations and others definitely looked unsettled at what they were hearing (I never said studying writing was going to be a comfortable experience 🙂 ). If you were at those sessions why not revisit those pieces and think about submitting them to this? After all, a £500 first prize would be a very nice way to kick off 2017 . . .
