50 Words Competition

Fifty Words Exactly.

That is the challenge. You could write a story, a poem, a riddle, an anecdote.  A prize will be found, but publication in The Porch will be a reward for all! Looking for inspiration? Here is the Bible in 50 words. And that is my entry completed!  (50 words including title)

More information (outside of 50 words!)

The topic can be on any subject – it may be witty, poignant, sad – but must be exactly 50 words  (with thanks to Martin Baldock, our previous vicar, for the idea).

Entries may either be emailed to the Parish Office ([email protected]) or posted though the vicarage letter box.
