A big thank you to all the contributors to the competition. We had 118 stories to read through, a most enjoyable task. The members of the Franklin Writers Group learnt a lot from your stories; what worked well, how to structure a short short story, how to include humour and pathos discreetly.
Look out for our next competition in 2023.
