Vivid imagination proves a real winner for Phyllis
P hyllis Norrie happily admits that she has a vivid imagination. Now that imagination has helped her to become second prize winner in the Let’s Talk short story competition for the second time.
In 2016 Phyllis, of Holt in Norfolk, was delighted to be named a runner-up in our popular competition, backed by Jarrold.
Now, a year later, Phyllis’ story, called ‘The Lion of Times Square’, has achieved a similar honour, winning her a year’s subscription to Let’s Talk magazine.
“I studied English literature for my degree and I enjoy reading and writing,” says Phyllis, now retired, after working as a project manager.
“I have a very vivid imagination. I have just started working on a children’s book about the lion in this story. This will be my first foray into writing for children,” she adds, clearly delighted at again finishing among the top three in our annual competition which, as always, attracted a large entry of stories.
“Please pass on my thanks to the judging panel for selecting my story to be a runner-up,” she says.
