Competitions 2017

Rotary Short Story, The Poetry and Poetry Illustration Competitions

Berwick Rotary has again organised and sponsored a Short Story Competition for young writers at our local schools. This year’s subjects are “Adventures around the River Tweed” for ages 9 – 13 yrs and “Living in the Borders” for age 18 & under.

This year we are running a Poetry Writing Competition for 5-13 years, in association with Berwick Visual Arts, inspired by the paintings in the Scottish Colourists exhibition at the Granary Gallery.

Our Poetry Illustration Competition’s poems are: First Schools “Mystery Creatures” by Wes Magee, Middle Schools “The Jabberwocky” by Lewis Carroll and Upper Schools “Macavity the Mystery Cat” by TS Eliot. Winners’ illustrations will be displayed in a town centre window until the end of October.

The winners of these competitions will be announced at an awards ceremony in the Guildhall on Saturday 21st October at 12 noon.
