The long awaited folder of stories and poems has been delivered and Chrissie is about to begin judging and writing critiques for categories 1 and 2 of the Derbyshire Eisteddfod, a year long event celebrating the Centenary of the W.I.
The Eisteddfod is an inspired idea from Derbyshire Federation linking the Centenary Celebrations back to the location of the very first W.I. meeting in the United Kingdom – Wales in 1915.
Chrissie is looking forward to some sunny afternoons reading and writing critiques for the following categories. Not looking forward quite so much to having to get down to the nitty gritty of making the big decisions!
Category 1 – Poetry Writing. The brief was to write an original poem in any style not less than 20 and not more than 40 lines, previously unpublished, on the theme ‘One Hundred”.
Category 2 – Short Story. The brief was to write an original story up to 500 words, previously unpublished on the theme ‘One Hundred’.
There will be a Grand Final at the Winding Wheel, Chesterfield on 11th September.
