The Whitleigh Words Festival Writing Contest Winners & Entrants
Thank you and well done to everyone who entered the Whitleigh Writing Contest 2015.
I wanted to run this contest because I believe that for some people it is their only way to express their thoughts and feelings. My hope was to have entries from those who were also not great with grammar and spelling, happily, that is what I got from some entrants and their writings were full of depth and feelings. That is what writing is all about, not being judged on your ability to write or the standard of a person’s education and not being afraid to express yourself! Writing from your heart and soul is the always the best way forward.
Below you will be able to read the nine winning poems, songs and stories.
