The March 2016 Creative Writing Competition. Details of competition, and how to enter.

Details of the March 2016 Creative Writing Competition.


The topic for March has been set by the winner of the January 2016 competition Fizzeerascal, who has chosen the topic “CLUEDO.”

Fizzeerascal commented as follows ..

“I have been clearing out the loft and spare room recently – a slow process as I am taken down memory lane… Amongst the clutter are many board games we have enjoyed over the years – one that makes me smile is Cluedo. I would like to propose the theme for March: Incorporate one or more of the characters into a story of any genre. Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Mr Green, Colonel Mustard, & Mrs White.etc.”
