Fantastic Yorkshire Wolds Railway Short Story Competition

LI4_0867

The railway is situated in attractive countryside in the heart of the Yorkshire Wolds and lends itself to opportunities for creative artists and writers alike.

We are therefore delighted to announce the launch of our own Short Story Competition to encourage people to write imaginatively about the line and the region.

The launch of the competition will be at our Fimber Halt site on the first open day of the season, Sunday May 1st, 2016 at 1 pm and you are invited to come along, see our railway and find out more.

Entries to the competition are just £2 each. However, if you would like to include an additional donation for the railway with your submission we would greatly appreciate it.

If we receive enough entries, we intend to publish an anthology of the winning and shortlisted entries to inspire more creative people in the future – as well as what we hope will be a fantastic read!

There will be a prize of £100 for the winner and additional prizes for runners-up which will be announced and presented at a ceremony towards the end of the season. Judges will include local published authors.

The publication of the anthology is with the generous co-operation of local publishing house Fantastic Books Publishing.

Latest details will be announced jointly on our website and that of Fantastic Books Publishing, in our newsletter, on site at Fimber Halt and through the local press.
