Our winner of the 2020 Long Short Story Contest has given me permission to share this with you...
Thank you ever so much for choosing my story.
Looking forward to seeing it in the 23rd Secret Attic Booklet, and reading all the other stories too.
This is a particularly poignant win because the essence of the story is based on a real experience my father had soon after the Second World War. He told the story to me a couple of years ago, and he read an earlier draft. He died last March at the grand age of 91.
Very best wishes
WINNER: £150.00 + Publication
A Paris Caper by Wendy Janes
Dandelion Clocks by Kathy Goddard
We have found our Winner & Runner-Up for The Long Short Story and we will be making the announcement on Twitter & Facebook at 8pm tonight!
Shout out to R Kenndy-Escott who has recently joined the Secret Attic family!
I've just been reminded of one of my stories, published on Briefly Write. I hadn't read it for quite some time and I'm sure it could be much better.
I thought twice about choosing the picture for the 11th Picture This contest - but I have just received an entry for it.
Not to put off anyone else who is thinking of entering this challenge, but this entry is darn good!
I just need to say that we, Secret Attic, are extremely lucky and very proud to have such a great bunch of writers who week after week, month after month, turn out some amazing stories. You are absolutely appreciated and talented.
And, of course, the Attic wouldn't be what it is without you.
So, thank you!
It's been hectic here in the Attic and we are showing no sign of slowing down... we have opened the Weekly Write (Week 1) for 2022, early.
We have announced all the contest winners and selected - we have sent .pdf files of Secret Attic Booklets 21 & 22 for those included to choose to make any edits if required (these must be back to us by the 10th January)
We have also updated the mailing list - if there has been no contact between us in 2021, your email address will now have been removed in accordance with GDPR.
The Results for the December Short Story contest have been announced...
