The team at Specsavers in Wisbech is calling all aspiring authors to take part in a writing competition.

Love of books

In line with this year’s Rose Fair theme ‘Love of Books’ the store is running a short story competition with a selection of writing goodies and Specsavers prizes up for grabs.

Three winners will be chosen from one of each of the following age categories:

  • Under 10
  • 10-15
  • 16 and over

To be in with a chance of winning, staff want to hear your short stories. Each story must mention the word ‘glasses’ at least once, but the main storyline can be decided by the author.

A word from the director

Shelby Sutterby, the optical assistant who organised the competition at the Wisbech store, said: ‘The Rose Fair is one of our favourite times year. The whole town comes together to celebrate throughout the festival, and to keep the theme alive we decided to run a competition to tap into the local community’s creative thinking.

‘We’re looking forward to reading everyone’s stories and hope that as many people as possible decide to take part. For anyone that’s interested in entering our team are on hand to offer more information so feel free to drop in our give us a call.’

The deadline for entry is 8 July 2017 and the winner will be announced on Saturday 15 July.
