Any Bronte lovers who are aspiring writers should definitely enter the Bronte Society’s Literary Competition. There are three entry categories : short stories, essays and poetry, and each entry must have a connection with the Bronte Sisters’ lives or works, or with people, places or objects connected with them. Which gives a huge scope….!
In each section first prize will be £500, second prize £250 and third prize £100. Also all entrants who are not already Society members will receive one year’s free membership of the Bronte Society(!)
Deadline for entries is 31st January 2011 so there is still a couple of months to have a crack at entering this competition. I am going to work on a short story, (although I usually find I have really trouble keeping the word count down!)
Anyone who is interested in entering should find out more information on www.bronte.org.uk – good luck!!!
