Our passion is writing and we work hard at our craft. Our aim is to encourage, support and help each other to reach new heights in our writing.

Natcon 50 information: Writing competition and more!‏

There's a prize of $3000 for writing a short story, love poem, film synopsis, or recipe. Each are to be a maximum of 120 characters - not words, but characters. I think it would be great if members entered the competition after the exercises - I know I could do with $3000! http://www.bpayshortandsweet.com.au/
