Visit to Cuddington and Dinton School, Bucks: April 2016
Following on from my visit to Cuddington and Dinton school, here I am with the Year 6 prize winners of a creative writing competition who used their incredible imaginations to create their own adventure for Arnie Jenks. Congratulations to all three! And if you want to read them, anyone who is visiting Haddenham Library in Bucks can find them on display. And a heartfelt thanks to everyone at the school who worked so hard taking part! It was very tough to judge, the standard being so high. Well done and good luck with all your future writing!

I'm very excited to announce I have been entered into the Words for the Wounded writing competition, for which I have been commended. I'm absolutely delighted to receive this exciting news which means a very great deal. Particularly as the standard of the entrants seemed so high in addition to being judged by Felicity Trew of the Caroline Sheldon Literary Agency.
Words for the Wounded raises money via writing prizes, events and donation to help wounded servicemen and women. Every penny is important, and every penny we raise goes to where it should, because the organisers, (the three grannies) absorb all expenses.
Our principle fundraising plank continues to be writing prizes and we consider our aim is to encourage aspiring writers as well as raising money. To this end we are now holding an annual LitFest day.
