500 days of Summer: The Winners!

Well, they do say that good things come to those who wait…

Summer seems a very, VERY long time ago now that it’s getting colder, but we’re going to take this opportunity to remind you of the very lovely summer of 2013 by (finally) announcing the winners of our 500 words of Summer story competition. Congratulations to:

Mia Collacott for her story ‘The Tigers’ Argument’.

Freddie Jordan for his story ‘The Seal with No Home’

Martin Lindill for his story, which didn’t have a title, but we’d like to call it ‘The Treaty of the Apple.’

There is also a prize for the story Great Grandmother and the Magic Milkshake’ – a joint effort by Charlotte Gorringe-Serrano and Scarlett Gavi-Gorringe.

The Seal with no Home by Freddie Jordan.

The judges, chaired by Alex Levine, of The Place Theatre were really impressed with the standard of the entries, and had a hard time picking the eventual winners.  The stories are all brilliant, and we’ll be celebrating with a special afternoon tea, where the winners will receive their signed books by local author Julia Jarman, and goody bags.

The Tigers’ Argument by Mia Collacott.

We’re going to compile a special book of stories to keep at the Kiosk – which all the entries we had will be included in. Anyone else who wants to contribute a 500-word(ish) story is welcome to – and you’ve got the rest of November to write one. So if all the fireworks have inspired your creativity, or of you fancy writing a Christmas story of your own – why not bring one down to The Kiosk at the Park? We’ll put it in our book! Illustrations very welcome too!

And yes, it is getting colder. But one of these marshmallow hot chocolate mountains might be enough to lure you out to submit a work of literary genius…

Warming, creamy, chocolate-y. Heaven in a cup.
