The Other Cheltenham Prize

Besides the open competition  which the Cheltenham Writers’ Circle has just launched (see cheltprize.wordpress.com) the Circle has for several  years run an annual competition for members, for short stories and poems read at meetings in the last  year.  The prize is a sliver platter – not to keep but  to guard until  next April – with book  tokens for the two runners up.

This  week I was delighted to win the platter with my story Grave Words, published as a page on this blog under the title  The Scarlet Skull.  The runners up were Judi Marsh and Christine Griffin.CWC plate
