The subject for this year is an Open Theme – that is anything you choose. Your entry should be a short story of no more than 1,500 words and you may enter up to 3 stories.

Entries should be emailed to the Secretary at , or handed to her at a Friday meeting. You must use a pen-name, and send the story as an attachment, which bears no other information about the writer. However you should identify yourself in the email, or if handing in an entry it should be in an envelope which only carries the pen-name, with a note inside of the author’s details. Entries should be double spaced.

The closing date is 31 January 2018. Judging will take place in February, by Peter Kelly, last year’s winner.

The President’s Shield, engraved with the winner’s name, will be presented at the March meeting.
