A 1929 Competition
Our Creative Writing Competition is not a new idea – in 1929 the magazine of the Salonika Reunion Association, ‘The Mosquito’, ran a Christmas short story competition for its members. They were veterans of the campaign, of course, so the entries were based on actual experience. Here is the announcement and a reminder from ‘The Mosquito’.
And here are the winning entries. Belated congratulations to Mr. Bowler, Mr. Bunning and Mr. Beer! (Click to enlarge)
