January Guideline:

For the Love of Writing:

Members are invited to send in any form of writing which they wish to display, to show their personal style and expertise. You may wish to send in an extract, a short story, a poem, an article, or a personal reflection or account of something which has caught your whim.

In the Anthology there are sections of miscellany – a total joy of items of writing, disparate, but entertaining. This competition reflects that strategy.
