A little Information about our Internal Competition
Each year, our writing group usually has 6 internal competitions for our authors however, due to the terrible virus situation we all find ourselves in, we are only going ahead with the Saviker for 2020-21. We do hope to return to a full programme of internal competitions next year.
Saviker: This has three parts:
Short Story - 1800 words max, Poetry - 36 lines max and Prose - between 500 and 1000 words
The details of this competition are set at the September meeting each year. Entries are received at the following July meeting and the results are given out in August - one month later.
