At the 2012 Swanwick Writers' Summer School the Indoor Writer met a lovely lady called Veronica Bright. Veronica had also won her place at the Summer School with a children's story. Our girl told Veronica all about her earlier win in April - the bursary award to the West Country Writers' Association's Literary Weekend (blog post here) and advocated it was worth applying for. Can you guess the news? Veronica has just heard that she's been awarded the bursary for 2013! The Indoor Writer first heard about this valuable prize from fellow blogger Sally Jenkins and now it's been passed on again. Isn't that wonderful?
Veronica has been enjoying a winning streak recently, well deserved as her writing is quite sublime. She came first in the NAWG 2012 Short Story competition, read more here. And also took first prize in the Greenacre Writers 2012 Competition, more here. Unfortunately neither of these websites yet have her stories uploaded to read. Do revisit them if you get the chance and read her work.
Wishing Veronica even more success in 2013!
Though could she please not enter the same competitions as the Indoor Writer...
