This year’s short story competition was a considerable success. Beverley Steffert, our Programme Secretary, arranged for it to be judged by the well-known literary agent Julian Friedmann. In his comments he remarked on the generally high standard of entries. He felt Cambridge Writers would be able to outclass any other writing group in the country. High praise indeed! On the basis of this we have now been able to publish all the entries.

Forgive me for bragging but I’m cock a hoop because I’ve just published my first novel, “Worlds Apart”. It’s a historical story of friendship set in Scotland at the time of the women’s suffrage movement and WW1.

Bringing philosophers to life

The idea for my project came to me when I read about the attempts that Plato made to persuade Dionysius, tyrant of Syracuse, to adopt a better form of government. He continued to attempt this with the tyrant’s son, also called Dionysius, when he succeeded his father. There was also a homo-erotic affair between Plato and Dion, a relative of the tyrants. I thought this would make good longish short story. In fact it grew into a novella of 22,000 words, and I felt that in the course of telling the story I had explained something of Plato’s philosophy.
