From my friend in the north.

Thanks to Beatrice for forwarding details of another writing competition - or rather series of them. To qualify you do need to live in the north of England. There are great prizes, opportunities for poetry, short story, novel and script writers.

Even more importantly it gives me another excuse to post one of my travel pictures! There is a castle in this town, but I've chosen a photo of the cathedral for a change. Recognise it?

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Patsy. May I please say that IMHO there is no downside to living in the north. ( Nice picture by the way)

    1. What I meant was that rule is a downside for those of us not fortunate enough to live in your wonderful part of the country, Beatrice.

    2. Oh good! I've taken it out though. I've already had one lesson that assuming our reader knows what we mean can cause upset - trying to learn from it.

    1. The places I've visited and people I've met have mostly been very nice, Christine. Hope to go back soon and continue my research.

    1. It would make a great house - if you didn't mind heights or had someone else clean the windows.

    1. I do live in England and still don't qualify, Chrys. Guess we can't win them all.

    1. I'll forgive you not recognising it, Misha. You probably don't spend a lot of time in Carlisle.
