Franklin Writers 2019 competition

Greetings to all, especially to writers,   

Believe it or not another two years have flown by and the Franklin Writers group is once again holding its biennial short story competition.  This time there are a couple of important changes.  First the competition is for a 300 word Flash Fiction story, closing on June 30th 2019.  Second, the award ceremony will be held at the ‘Words Will Work’ South Auckland writers festival to be held at Nathan Homestead, Manurewa on Saturday 27th July 2019. 

Conditions and entry form for the competition are attached or may be found on the  Franklin Writers Group website.

We would be grateful if you could pass this on to your fellow writers networks and we look forward to receiving their support of both the competition and the festival.
