Writers needed for Warkworth Show
The 142nd Warkworth Show takes place at the Castle on Saturday 17th August this year. As ever, your turnips, performing dogs, runny honey, hand knitted socks, beetroots, photographs, knitted shawls, garlic, swiss rolls, macaroons, chutney, dahlias and sunflowers will be welcome.
But for budding and blooming writers, there are several chances to show off your literary skills as well. There is one topic for adult poetry, of no more than 20 lines; the subject is ‘Travelling’, and you can choose any form you like. So whether you have sledged to the Antarctic or taken a bus no further than Broomhill, do please put pen to paper and delight us with your journeyings.
There’s also a chance for adults to submit a review of not more than 200 words of your favourite book. For children (Year 9 and above) we also want reviews of your favourite book, again in not more than 200 words. Entry forms are included in the Show’s Schedule, and entries are to be with the Secretary Julie Mohon, 4 Albion Close, Warkworth (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) by Saturday 10th August. There is no entry fee for any of the categories.
