Thank you to everyone who entered the Minds Shine Bright writing competition. Your entries were a joy to read. Some made us laugh and some made us cry. There was a great diversity of thinking around the theme of confidence and we look forward to exploring this theme further over time.
By the end of this week we will have contacted all entrants to let everyone know how they went.
Over June and July we will be working closely with our shortlisted entrants to create the first ever Minds Shine Bright anthology Confidence. We will also be giving twenty writers gifts of recognition to celebrate our first year of competition.
In August it will be time to celebrate and announce the competition winners, the shortlist and the long list. We are planning this event and will let you know more soon.
Winter is fast approaching and our first mini fiction competition will be opening in early June. There will be new prizes, new rules and we are excited to announce that our new theme will be storm.
So let your imaginations run wild. Storm can be a physical event, something more emotional and internal, it can happen behind the scenes to trigger the story line, like in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, or it can be a symbol.
