Pauline Rowson Author of the DI Horton Crime Series Presents Prizes to Winners of Short Story Competition

Had a great time presenting certificates and prizes to the adult winners of the Wight Fair Writers Circle Winter Short Story Competition at an Awards Ceremony held at Newport Minster on the Isle of Wight on Tuesday 20 December.

Here are some photographs taken from the event organised by the Wight Fair Writers Circle and by fellow crime authors Bob and Carol Bridgestock.

'It was a great evening and a delight to see so many people, particularly young people, enjoying the craft of writing. Thanks to the Wight Fair Writers Circle for inviting me to present the certificates and to Wightlink who sponsored my travel to the Isle of Wight. 

(I also got to travel on the Bridge of the Wightlink ferry again but I'm saving those photos for another blog entry- some great location shots of DI Andy Horton Marine Mystery Country - will post them between Christmas and New Year)
