The Retreat West Microfiction competition is great fun!
Early in the month a prompt is given and submissions are invited with a one week submission window. The pieces must be exactly 100 words.
In November, the prompt was 'Shine.' I encouraged the writers, many who are beginning their writing journey, in the writing class I co-facilitate with my great friend Carolann Copland https://www.facebook.com/carolann.copland/ in Knocklyon Adult Education https://www.knocklyonadulted.ie/ to submit to the competition and was thrilled so many of them took up the challenge.
I was lucky enough to win the People's Prize with my piece 'I Polished All Our Shoes on Saturday Evenings.'
Read it and the other winners on the website.
