A Message from Brenda

15th September 2017

This year we experimented with a D.I.Y. WOTY. It worked – we got about 15 prose and 15 poetry entries, which allowed a reasonable spread of people to assess the entries, and the winning entries are now being posted on the website. We congratulate them all! Whether it worked well enough to continue this way will be for the committee to assess, and any of you own comments on this should be passed to Jock Stein jstein@handselpress.org,uk or myself brenda.murray27@talktalk.net
