As part of The Folkestone Book Festival there is a short story competition held by The Folkestone Writers group. Yesterday I went to the reading of the winning stories.
The results of this year’s competition were:
1st Prize: Geoff Madle for ‘The Cruciverbalist’s Tale’.
2nd Prize: Alexander Tulloch for ‘A Bitch called Lucy’.
Third place: Margaret Harland-Suddes for ‘The Fire Bird’.
A fun couple of hours listening to the stories with a lively debate about them!
We will now wait to see what stories are picked to go in The Folkestone Anthology for 2018.
