Norwich Writers' Circle

Encore!

2nd February saw the return of James Dimelow to the front for his adjudication of the short playwriting competition. But before we got down to business, we had four successes to announce.

The EDP has published two more of Margaret Turner’s poems, My Friend and November. These Margaret read out to an appreciative audience. Another East Anglian title, Suffolk Norfolk Life accepted not just Patricia Stammers’ Snowdrops at Walsingham article, it included her scenic photos too. Phyllida Scrivens was also featured with her recent biography, Escaping Hitler. And it’s not all been reading matter. On the 11th, Mr Dimelow and audience are set to see the first scene of his latest play perfomed as part of the Maddermarket Theatre’s latest talent showcase.

Which all brings us back to James’ adjudication…

James summed up again his guidelines and his own strict adherence to them when choosing his winners. In fact he had four top quality entries. These were: (Commended) We Have Ways by Phyllida Scrivens; (3rd) Easy To Love by Olive Riseborough; (2nd) Dreaming Of Her Majesty by Andrew Heron; (1st) By Appointment by Mickie Dann.

It was a fun night, both for performers and audience as the winners entries were enacted.
