The very best 2016 competition entries have been published in one anthology entitled Journey through Uncertainty & other short stories features physical and emotional journeys, endured and enjoyed, with humour and courage – each one a testimony to a place, or an event, or a sentiment.
Contributors were encouraged to relay through their writing how they might have been changed by a ‘journey’ or how their travels allowed them time to reflect and reinforce, or challenge, accepted viewpoints.
Congratulations to the prizewinners and many thanks to all who entered the competition – visit www.ouenpress.com to view the FINAL RESULTS.
Eire based business writer and housewife, Emma Smith won top place for her work Journey through Uncertainty. Other prizewinners include former UK government advisor and diplomat John Frew, for Danny on the Beach, and London based actor, writer & adventurer Sophia Jackson-Gill for The Land of the Free.
We were delighted again with the global reach of the competition as we promoted a worldwide submissions policy, reflecting our interest in talented writers regardless of geography.
And what’s more, the show of interest in the competition from both experienced writers and those new to the short story form has encouraged us here at Ouen Press to continue with the annual competition. Deadline dates and details of the upcoming theme will be made available on our website later in the year – or you may wish to check in with us on Twitter @OuenP or Facebook @ouenpress for more regular updates on future competitions and all our other activities.
Wishing you every success with your future writing projects, all the best from the Ouen Press team.
