Simon has set the subject ‘A death on the island’ for the 2017 Amor Trophy.  Entries do not need to be in before January 31st 2017.   Rules as before – see post on the 2016 contest.

Members are also asked to consider whether we should have two competitions, one for prose and one for poetry, as the judges have found it difficult in an apples against oranges way to come to conclusions.

This will be discussed again at forthcoming meetings, and should anyone see a bright red glass shoe anywhere, at moderate cost, that could swing the decision.  They seem easily obtainable in the US – is anyone heading Stateside over the next 9 months?-
