The 2022 competition has been launched and interested writers are encouraged to brainstorm and come up with original ideas.

The theme of the contest is A Twist of Fate and this must be the inspiration for these categories:
• Fiction
• Flash fiction
• Nonfiction

For the other categories, participants can choose their own topic. These are:
• Poetry
• Haiku
• Life is like that

Further details will be released shortly, but interested authors can contact competition coordinator Shirley Armstrong for more information at [email protected]

Members and non-members of Writers 2000 are welcome.

One of the benefits of the group being able to have real meetings again (as opposed to just virtual meetings) is the ability to give out rewards received by members during lockdown.

At the March meeting, President Meggan Preuss presented some 2020 awards:
• Gus Coward received the Pen Cup for his writing achievements within the band
• Nicolette Gardiner received the Carpenter Cup for Achievement in Outside Writing

In 2021, several non-members were among the winners of the annual writing competition.

All writers and aspiring writers are invited to submit their writings in the different categories.
