            WRITING FOR FUN CHALLENGE 2021

Based on the enthusiastic response at the June General Meeting, the Club is again giving members the chance to write original works with the chance of winning valuable prizes and the admiration of your peers.

 

Its form is a little different from the 2020 competition.  This year there are three categories:

                    I.            Fiction;

                  II.            Non-fiction; and

               III.            Poetry.

 

Your participation in writing a story or stories, and reading and voting on them is vital to the success of this venture so dust off your word-processor and send us your amazing tales in prose or poetry form.

 
  • Entries can only be from Balnarring Probus Club members and need to be submitted before the end of September 2021.

 
  • Any Member can submit up to three entries.  These can be in whichever category or categories he wishes.

 
  • An entry can be of any length up to a maximum of 2000 words.

 
  • Voting will be open to all members and closes at the end of October.

 
  • For voting purposes, authors’ names will be kept secret where possible but obviously you will need to identify yourself when submitting entries.

 
  • Winners will be announced at the Christmas Lunch.

 

Please send entries to Roger Price [email protected] ideally in Word format.

 

VIRTUALLY THE CHOIR:

Just when THE CHOIR was primed to present a sparkling performance at The Annual General Meeting, along came Social Distancing.  To compensate, and to whet your appetite for when next we sing, here is a sampler of our repertoire (although the artists presented may lack a little of our collective skills - they do their best!)
