Two writing competitions – Dark Angels and Hollywood

Loop-de-loop with Dark Angels

Does your writing need an autumn tune-up? Dark Angels has a very special offer for 26 members under the age of 30 – a fully sponsored FREE place on the Full Foundation course (15-20 October 2012).

Dark Angels’ John Simmons says: “We’d like to invest in the future of writing, so we are making a special award of a sponsored place for a writer under the age of 30. Let us know by Friday 28 September if you’d like to be considered. You will only have to pay your travel costs to get to Moniack Mhor (nearest airport/railway Inverness). Just tell us in one sentence why you would like to come.” Please email

Moniack Mhor is a comfy converted farmhouse and croft on a hilltop near Loch Ness with spectacular views of the Highlands. Like all Dark Angels courses, the aim of this course is to discover how you can inject more colour, personality and freshness into all your writing, business and personal. See the website for further information

Here’s what 26-er Fay Sharpe said recently: “Since my induction as a Dark Angel at Moniack Mhor last October, I have blogged every week, written poetry every day and researched a war-time travelogue. My new-found wings want to spread wide and it’s such a thrill doing loop-de-loop with my words!”
