It was hard to write this post. Not because the days here are getting shorter, but because the next entry awaits and a moment of reflection and clarity is needed.
Like a submerged tree in a river I’m immersed in the judging process for the first Minds Shine Bright writing competition. Reading each entry provides a new perspective on the theme of confidence and the imagination and effort of each entrant shines.
Over the next couple of months a long list, a short list and the winners will be decided. If you are an entrant we will let you know when we have reached each stage. Then we will work with the winners and commended entries to create the anthology.
We will announce the winners around July, and we look forward to celebrating with you.
We are planning on running the Minds Shine Bright confidence writing competition each September, so that we can capture changes over time. However you won’t have to wait that long to start writing again.
We are creating a new writing competition for Minds Shine Bright which will start soon. There will be a new theme and some changes . . . but more on that next month
