Details of the SEPTEMBER 2015 Creative Writing Competition.


The topic for SEPTEMBER has been set by the winner of the July 2015 competition ‘PavlovaQueen’ who has chosen the topic “HYPE”

Pavlova has the following to say about her topic …

On the way to the hairdresser I got a few “gifts” (i.e. new products being shoved) bestowed upon me – one called Philosophy – Renewed Hope in a Jar….as well as Le Jour de Chanel (infinitessimally small flat plastic with it’s mates Le Nuit and Le Weekend!), all different (they swear), as your skin needs “time off” in the weekend!

In the end I only got Smoothing Lusterizer defrizzer & tamer from the hairdresser which suitably has the name “Hype”. So anything about sales people, discounts, talked up products, or the ridiculousness of names they’re given etc. I thought there’d be some good tales in that.”
