Readers of this blog will no doubt be aware that I (along with 5 other people) recently won the Apostrophe Gallery Short Short Story contest, and went to Bali to catch the sights and attend the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival.

What an adventure for the price of 16 words! I got to see a beautiful island, make some new friends and listen in on authors talking about what it takes to write a novel.

If words are not quite your thing, Apostrophe Gallery just kicked off the next leg of their programme – Postcards. This phase is still about storytelling, but with visual media – photos or artwork in a postcard-size image to the theme of “1.30pm”. Click on the thumbnail on the right for full details.

The prize is an all-expense paid trip to Bangkok and a Sony Ericsson mobile phone. The deadline is 16 Sept Nov. Get cracking people. Let’s give them another Kuching winner!

  1. Hi Georgette!

    I think the contest deadline is meant to be listed as 16 Nov instead of 16 Sept? :)

    I came across your blog a while ago but this is the first post I’ve ever commented on since I usually prefer to lurk in the background :) Thanks for the heads-up about the new Postcards contest, and a belated congratulations on winning the short story contest! To be honest, I thought your entry was the best (and I’m not just saying that to polish apples).
