The judges were very happy with the quality of entries to the writing competition and have passed on to Andrew Taylor a difficult job to decide the winners. We can’t wait to see!

The names of the authors will be announced on Mon 3 July at 6 pm at the Coleford Baptist Hall. We will also have on sale there an anthology of the above entries, and during the Festival our shortlisted authors will be reading their pieces at various events.

The winners will be announced by Andrew on Sat 8 July at 7 pm at the Coleford Baptist Hall.


We wish our shortlist every success!
