Voting Closes Tomorrow


Just in case you haven’t already voted, this is a kindly reminder that voting closes at 11:59pm tomorrow, 27th May 2019.

The votes will then be tallied up and our lucky winner will be announced at the group meeting on Tuesday 28th May.

There are a lot of fantastic entries, so I’m sure this is going to be a close one!

Emerging Writers Group “Bookshop” Competition

This Month, Paul & Beth have been so kind as to create a competition for all of the emerging writers.

The wonderful prize is a “sit-down” with a published author who writes for the same age group that you write for.

The only parameters for competition entries are as follows

  1. It must be under 500 words in length
  2. It must be set in a bookshop

Entries can be a full story, short story or excerpt and can be on any topic, or subject, it just needs to be set in a bookshop.  Entries for the competition close on 14th May 2019 and all entries will be posted to EWG Online (as I am now calling it) shortly after.

A voting form will be available online, and you will have a total of 3 points to divide between two stories.  One will receive 2 points, the other will receive 1. You may not vote for your own entry.

Please email your entries directly to Beth at with the subject line “EWG Bookshop Competition Entry”


Good luck and happy writing!
