Uncommon wealth

Thanks to S Bee for telling me about the Commonwealth Writers short story prize.

To enter you must be a citizen of a commonwealth country. Entries of 2,000 to 5,000 words must be submitted by the 1st of November. There are regional prizes of £2,500 and the overall winner will get £5,000.

That's an unusually high prize for a free entry competition.

I've just returned from Scotland. That's a commonwealth country, so I feel totally justified in spamming you with a few of the many, many photos I took.


Thanks to Marion Clarke for an update on the monster flash fiction competition I mentioned recently. I wasn't sure if there was a prize. There is – £100 of book vouchers.

What is that last picture of?

@ Alex – I think it's called a copper (on account of being made from that metal). It's used to distil whisky.
