Writers & Artists are delighted to announce the winners of the travel fiction competition, held in partnership with Bloomsbury author Suzanne Joinson.
We challenged you to write a short story, with plenty of life, detail and imagination, which brilliantly evoked a location of your choice. We received over 100 entries and the standard was very high. Choosing just two winners was quite a feat for our judge Suzanne Joinson.
First prize winner: Dorothy Collard, Cave of Dreams
Comments from judge Suzanne Joinson: "I was impressed with the immediacy of this piece. It is strongly visualised and the reader is there, right in the story. Wonderful imagery and the prose was refreshingly clear and light. Excellent stuff."
Prize: A signed copy of Suzanne Joinson's A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar, a Peyton and Byrne gift hamper and your story published on www.writersandartists.co.uk
Second prize winner: Kathryn Nelson, Ocean Gateway
Comments from judge Suzanne Joinson: "A wonderfully atmospheric and intriguing piece. Very well written in cliche-free prose that is both evocative and lyrical. A lovely read."
Prize: A signed copy of Suzanne Joinson's A Lady Cyclist's Guide to Kashgar and your story published on www.writersandartists.co.uk
The two winning stories will be published here on 30th July 2012.
