I like to enter writing competitions for several reasons. One is that they provide the possibilty of finding a home for a piece of writing which I wouldn’t be able to get published through the magazines I usually write for.
I like the competitions even better when I win – as I did here with my story Iceberg. As I’ve never photographed an Iceberg I had to use a slightly less obvious illustration. You’ll have to read the story to see why I thought it was close enough!
