The Pint Pot of Fire

Here we go, here we go, here we go...

I've just completed the payment for The Writers @ Lovedean to enter in The Pint Pot of Fire Competition.  I’m so excited that so many members of the group have shown support this year, especially new members. 

Taken from web site:

The Pint Pot of Fire is an annual storytelling competition. It is unique because it brings together very different approaches to storytelling, from the short story read by the author to the oral tradition of storytelling where "no reading aloud allowed" is the watchword.

The stories must last as close as possible to 10 minutes. There are time penalties for finishing more than 15 seconds early or late. The quality of this year's stories was superb and intriguingly varied. The difference in approach to among writers, public speakers and oral tradition storytellers is profound. It was to explore precisely this cultural clash that the Pint Pot of Fire was established.

Since 2010, The Pint Pot of Fire has been part of Alton WordFest
