Hi All,
  One of the UK's most popular writing competitions is now open. With £15K in prize money across its categories and associated prestige up for grabs it is certainly worth investigating.

If you decide to enter - good luck!

Still over 100 days to go before the closing date so plenty of time left.

Message from our friends at VWC

An update on some of the workshops being run by Verulam Writers Circle.

Just in case you were planning on attending on the 23rd.

"Hello everyone,

Just to let you know that we have, unfortunately, decided it is best to
re-schedule Ian Skillicorn's workshop of Wednesday 23rd January due to the snow.  Whilst it is possible that the weather will be clearer by this date, forecasts suggest there is more snow on the way.  We would hate poor Ian to make it all the way to St Albans, only to discover that VWC members were stuck at home.  This date will now serve as a manuscript evening.
I am waiting for Ian to come back to me with a new date and will be in touch with you all as soon as I hear.  I am hoping that it will be re-scheduled for March, so not too long to wait!
Meanwhile, don't forget on 20th February Julie Mayhew will be joining us at St Michaels to talk about her debut novel Red Ink
All the best,
MHB.
VWC Events Organiser"

Pulp Heroes 2 - your basic good guy versus bad guy story from a Pulp angle.

Astrlologica - stories that have a link to the signs of the zodiac..

Urban Mythic - stories in contemporary settings with a mythological or folklore twist...


Check the individual links above for more details but they are mostly looking for stories of 3000-8000 to be published in an anthology - the closing date for submissions is the 31st March 2013.

Could be worth a look!
