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

The topic for the stories was set by Chester-Goode who chose the topic “OCEANIC TRAVEL BY WHATEVER MEANS”.

This was to be a story which involves crossing the oceans by sea or air. The delights, concerns, or even problems that one might meet in the process or on the journey. The reason for travel — tourism/settlers/immigrants/convicts/business etc., or possibly a shipboard romance, a hi-jack, pirates, or simply a case of arriving at the wrong destination or losing your  luggage. on the way.

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

A total of 13 entries have been acceptedand links to the stories are listed below.

Thank you to all the writers who have entered a 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 as a comment on this link …

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  Sunday the 9th of August 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.
