HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Authors can share their short stories (less than 2000 words please) or poetry, and it won’t cost you a penny! The stories or poems can be on any subject, but please keep them reasonably family friendly. At the end of every month I will pick my favourite one and share the link in my newsletter and on my Facebook and Twitter pages. I look forward to reading your efforts. Winners will receive the laurel below to add to their story.

There was no winner for December, as there were no contestants!  Fair enough, Christmas came along and you were all busy.  Let’s have another go for January…

SHORT STORY LAUREL JANUARY

 

Please add a link to your story in the comments section of this blog.  Thank you.  You have until 28th January to submit your stories.  When I have enough winning stories, I will promote them in a free anthology (with the consent of every author involved of course!).

Here’s a seasonal poem I’ve worked on recently:

WINTER IN MY GARDEN, BY STEVIE TURNER

Silver tendrils snake along

The shed, the hedge, and over the pond.

Jack Frost’s crept stealthily overnight,

And left on the grass a blanket of white.
