Catherine Cookson Cup readings - Monday 25 November 2013

A large group of members gathered on Monday 25 to hear readings from the entries for our most prestigious competition, the Catherine Cookson Cup.  This competition, for a short story of up to 3000 words will be judged this year by literary agent Laura West from the prestigious David Higham Agency. Results will be announced at our Presentation Evening on 6 December.
The readings were, as ever, entertaining - and tantalising, as shortage of time meant that we only heard extracts from each story.
In addition, we heard good news from two of our members. Eileen Masters has published her long-awaited memoirs of her time in Afghanistan - 'Prayer for an Infidel', and KD Faerydae has published her first book - 'Hidden Magic'. Congratulations to both of them!
