********************************

The deadline for entries into the APRIL 2015 Creative Writing Competition passed at Midnight  last night.

The topic for the stories was set by Expatangie and was described thus … “HEALTH. Good bad and indifferent, and in the widest interpretation of the word.”

<><><><><><><><><>><><><><><><><>

A total of 18 entries have been accepted and links to the stories are listed below.

Thanks to all the writers who have entered ( especially those that have submitted more than one story), and thanks in advance to all those readers out there who I hope will now support the competition by reading the stories and registering their vote.

All stories are to be treated separately and equal for the purposes of voting regardless of how many entries a writer has submitted.

This is an open competition, and any interested party who wishes to participate is welcome to join in the voting and/or commenting on the stories at the appropriate time or place.

*********************************************

As in previous months, it would help if voters would make sure to quote the name of the story when posting their vote rather than the name of the writer, and I thank you in anticipation of your co-operation.

Voting can now commence and will continue until 11 p.m. on Friday the 8th of MAY 2015.

There are no restrictions as to who is allowed to vote, all that is asked is that the voter reads all the stories and votes according to their preference. A brief reason for your choice is welcome but not mandatory.
Voters are requested to vote 5 points for first place, 3 points for second, and 1 point for third place.

Please do not submit any other point combinations such as 3/3/3, 4/4/1, 5/2/2, etc.

Writers are requested not to vote for any of their own entries. There will be no detailed summaries posted as to how the voting is progressing throughout the voting period but as soon as possible after voting closes a tabulated list of results will be posted separately and the winner declared.

*************************************************************

PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT AT LENGTH ABOUT THE STORIES OR RECORD ANY THOUGHTS THAT YOU MAY HAVE ON THEM, UNTIL AFTER VOTING CLOSES.

IF YOU WISH TO DESCRIBE IN DETAIL THE REASONS FOR YOUR CHOICES, OR COMMENT AT LENGTH ABOUT SOME OR ALL OF THE INDIVIDUAL  STORIES, A SEPARATE PAGE WILL BE SET UP AT THE END OF THE VOTING PERIOD AND AFTER THE RESULT HAS BEEN POSTED.
