Short Story 2013 Prize Giving.
After many gloomy weeks, it seemed only fitting that the sun should shine for our Prize-Giving afternoon at Bridgwater Arts Centre. We were delighted and humbled by the fact that Dame Margaret Drabble agreed to be our final adjudicator and would like to thank her so much for her time and for her encouragement. I know all the writers present were truly delighted to have had the opportunity to meet such an eminent author and to have had their own work read by Margaret.
Welcoming the "New Batch"
On the 25th of March 2013 Home-Start Bridgwater area officially welcomed 9 new home visiting volunteers after completing their 10 week preparation course.
Each year Home-Start offers a free preparation course for parents or those with parenting experience, wanting to help and support families who are struggling to cope, to become home visiting volunteers. This year we had a fantastic response and 9 keen, fresh faces began the course.
Short Story Prize - Short List
After much reading and re-reading, the short list of ten stories is now with Dame Margaret Drabble for her final adjudication and we await the result with much excitement.
This year we have received 416 entries; the exact sum raised for Home-Start Bridgwater Area has yet to be finalised but will be in excess of £3,500.
With the authors' permission, we hope to publish the top three stories on our website after the Prize-giving on April 6th.
All those involved in Home-Start Bridgwater Area would like to say a very big thank you to all who entered and also to those who sponsored the competition.
