Brian Capron and Susan Thacker will be guests for the competition, which is taking place in the Garden Suite of the Hydro Hotel on Tuesday (October 11) at 7.30pm.

There will be cash prizes – £60 for the winner of the short story section and £50 for the poetry section.

Other prizes include afternoon teas for two at the Langham Hotel, Hydro Hotel, and Haberdasher’s Kitchen on the first floor of Close & Hamblin.

Café Old Town in Star Road is also offering a lunchtime treat for two and a £20 Waterstones voucher has been donated by competition secretary Francis Wait.

Chairman of Anderida Writers Tony Flood said, “Members present will vote on the entries read by Brian and Susan. Guests will also be welcome to attend. The Garden Suite is an ideal venue, with plenty of room for social distancing.”
