We asked our Creative Competitor newsletter and Write, Learn and Publish subscribers to create a postcard message that fitted with our competition overview:
Imagine that you have found some old postcards, edges fading hidden in an old trunk in the loft. One of the postcards has a very cryptic and compelling message, all you need to do is to write a brief message that fits our theme and email it to us in the usual way. Word count is limited – it is only for the back of a postcard remember, so write your message in a maximum of 75 words.
We are pleased to announce the winners:
1st Prize: £75 – Vicky Cox
2nd Prize: £50 – Belinda Garner
Here’s Vicky’s winning postcard entry.
Jilted at the altar, heart-broken and humiliated, I have had to spend our planned honeymoon alone, contemplating what might have been. Time, sun and beautiful scenery are healing my broken dreams and I realize that fate played a wonderful hand that day. Happiness beckons me. Here, I can be the person I was never allowed to be with you. So to new beginnings, I raise my glass and say Happy Honeymoon darling.
