Rob Richardson in Portsmouth England has come up with a novel new approach to the writing competition. It's basically an 'open-mic' style in which a writer has half an hour to write and submit a piece.
The competitions take place on his website write-invite.com every Saturday night between 5.30 and 6pm. I haven't tried it yet but will give it a go at the weekend and let you know how I get on!
You've been a wonderful audience, folks!
