RH Cunningham Memorial Short Story Competition 2017

“…human life, seen through human eyes, sometimes fortunate, sometimes unfortunate, neither perfect nor imperfect; it simply was, and is…” RH Cunningham, 1911 – 2006

Life Dances - PRESS RELEASE, 2nd August

ISBN-13: 978-1548631246 /ISBN-10: 1548631248

To honour the life of his grandfather RH Cunningham, Trevor Maynard set up a short story competition. Willowdown Books is proud to announce the six winning stories will now all appear in the anthology, Life Dances.  The competition was won by Sandy Norris with her story No Going Back; and the five runners-up are Baking by Maria Borland, When Food Kills by Linda DuPret, Too Much by Israela Margalit, The Death of Rock ‘n’ Roll by Michael McLaughlin, and True North by Lynne Zolatis.  Life Dances was not only a competition, it is a labour of love, with The Dance, a short story adapted from journals of RH Cunningham by his grandson, Trevor Maynard, also included, as well as Flash Fiction by Neetu Malik, GK Grieve and Sophia Keech.

What makes a poetic bond?

The process of selecting poems for publishing The Poetic Bond series is unlike any other in that there is no set plan as to what will be published. It depends on the themes which emerge from the pool of work submitted, or to put it another way, the poetic energy which comes together at this certain time and place.  Where themes emerge, patterns of energy harmonize, form bonds, connections, and these in turn lead to interconnected chapters, and the creation of a holistic volume, deeply connected with humanity, nature, and the universe.

 

 

 

 

 

“Poetry, both reveals and shares our humanity”

(Trevor Maynard, managing editor, The Poetic Bond Series)

So far there have been six volumes of The Poetic Bond, featuring over 130 poets from 17 Countries who have contributed 248 poems
