The Sybil Amor Trophy will be awarded in 2015 to the winner of the first Sybil Amor Writing Competition.  This is open to all members of the Group, and will be judged by Sybil’s daughter Becky, and two other judges recruited from external Writers Groups.

Entries should be anonymous, and can be a short story or poem. Maximum wordcount is 2500.  Subject/Title  ‘Lizzie met her at the gate’.   They should be submitted by email to devizeswriters@gmail.com, as an attachment that does not include the author’s name.

Closing date for entries is 31st January 2015.

The trophy itself is a large glass that belonged to Sybil, in her trademark colour cleverly mounted on 50 year old Oak by Mike Williams.  Her poem ‘Beware’ shown in our May 2014 archive is on the plaque on the right.
