John, a very discerning chap, who follows this blog, contacted me today to tell me that he’s won the last Writers Bureau competition, that I told you about here.
It was a caption competition and I can see why John’s entry was the winner (it’s funny!).
He is, naturally enough, rather chuffed and has won a correspondence course on Freelance Journalism to work through at his leisure, with 15 assignments, all of which will be marked by a personal tutor. Not bad, eh?
Although I work for the WB (as a poetry tutor), I don’t know exactly how much the courses cost but I’d say that one is worth at least £100 – probably a lot more.
Hmm, so that’s now THREE people who’ve won Writers Bureau courses since I encouraged them to enter the monthly (free!) competitions.
Can we make it FOUR?
If you’re interested in writing for children, then why not have a go at their latest competition to win one of the Writers Bureau correspondence courses on… you’ve got it.. ‘Writing for Children’.
This time it’s a treasure hunt. Those devious people at WB want you to follow the links to various pages on their website and unscramble the letters you find to make the title of a Christmas carol.
Well, that sounds like a great excuse for a bit of procrastination, if you ask me, so read all about it here (scroll down a bit) – and enjoy!
Entry is free and open to everyone and you’ve got until 31st December to email your entry. So do it now, before you get bogged down in Christmas cards… !
