    It's arrived, and this issue has the competition guide with it.

  • Got mine!
    Lovely to see several familiar names in the shortlist of one of the comps, inc. one very worthy runner-up.

    Of course, we have trained them well here at Camp TB.

    Sorry Heather which page are you on?
    Thanked by 2heather kado
  • I don't know as I haven't seen the mag yet, but it will be name only. The story is in the Showcase link from the Writing Competitions tab above.
  • Heather

    If your story is called 'The Beginning' there's a pic of you, short bio, photo with the story.

    Not just name only
  • In the magazine?
    I wasn't expecting that!
  • Yep

    *waves to Heather's pic in t'mag*
    Thanked by 1heather
  • Oh yes read that Heather, but didn't recognise the name. Congratulations!
    Thanked by 1heather
  • *waves back to dora*
    That's good. I was told it would only be online, but I expect that is the standard email for runners up and they have room for both in the mag with the shorter word limits.
    I can register that for ALCS then!
  • ALCS will be offline from 6pm tonight until Monday morning.
  • congrats Heather and Kado!
    Thanked by 2heather kado

  • Hello, I'm writing from Canada. I entered the Iceland Writers Retreat travel writing competition, and while I know I wasn't the winner, I'm curious about the list of runners-up. Flirting with buying the April issue of the magazine, and wondering if the competitions are mainly for residents of the UK only. Thanks!
  • The competitions are open (unless it's the subscribers only competition obviously)- there's nothing in the rules that say UK only KatieCan. :)

    Not sure what you mean when you say 'curious about the list of runners-up'?

  • Hi, Katie, and welcome.

    If you private message me your name, I will check the shortlist for you.
