A CELEBRATION OF TALENT
After several months of preparation and planning the winners of the Creative Writing Competition 2014 were able to celebrate their respective successes in The Mayor’s Chamber and Parlour on the evening of Wednesday 23 July.
It was especially gratifying this year because the strength of the Competition was so good. Over 40 entries were received, all adding a variety of insights into the different styles of narrative writing.
The objective was to write the introductory chapter of an autobiography, either real, or imagined and without exception this was approached with gusto and enthusiasm. The quality of writing was exceptional, to the extent that the task of assessing and making decisions proved to be challenging for the judging panel. However a consensus of opinion was reached and overwhelmingly four worthy winners were chosen.
Winner Candida Niman – Read
Second Prize Peter Sain les Berry – Read
Third Prize Christine Burns – Read
Highly Commended Dr. Zain Sami – Read
The competition has been sponsored by Archytas Strategic Planning
