a showcase of our work
Inkerman Writer Mike Watson is celebrating after one of his pieces was named runner-up in a short story competition.
The competition was organised by Durham Wildlife Trust, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
The Trust organised the writing competition to add to the celebrations and the theme was how Nature has affected, or changed, your life, with a word limit of 500.
Mike, who receives a £25 book token and a coveted Golden Badger Badge, said: “It’s great when somebody appreciates what you have written, that they will actually reward you for your thoughts. Being placed in a competition is also a terrific incentive to keep on writing.”
