Last month we had a very successful St Francis Today Writing Competition that saw some fantastic entries and was eventually won by Saskia Boonzaier for this entry – Small Town Swops. It was a great story with loads of feedback.
Since then, I have been stopped many times on my daily movements – whether in the SPAR, grabbing a coffee at Barry’s, or even at the beach, with locals telling me that they have such an epic story that they would like to submit.
This is excellent news, and the entries for round 2 have started coming in. only two weeks to go, so if you’re one of those people who have an epic story in their heart, please try and get them down onto into a
word document so that we can read these tales of adventure and drama and publish them. To laugh, sigh, cry, and cheer you on inside your epic story. The month’s first entry has been sitting with us for a while, and we will publish it tomorrow. Then we go into an epic poem for Thursday. We hope to have that third entry in by Friday, so feel free to send us what you have. Stay calm about your spelling, punctuation, syntax, or anything else. The St Francis Today juggernaut will fix all that.
We will accept any writing, poetry, long-form, and even fiction, as long as it is labelled; we just don’t want any sort of nastiness and too much swearing and cussing, negativity and not too much moaning. We can leave that in the real world because the world of writing is full of joy and wonder and how funny things were back then.
There is R1k from the pockets of the St Francis Today empire for the winner.
*We are looking for a sponsor for this competition. If there is any brand or company that wants to sponsor this, please reach out and let us know. This month it is hosted by Wildside TIMES Magazine, and the winner gets published in the next issue of Wildside TIMES Print Magazine.
