COMEDY WOMEN IN PRINT
The UK & Ireland's first comedy literary prize dedicated to celebrating witty women's writing
This festive season I will: probably be quite embarrassing
This year I have been: bad
My most heartfelt wish is: to enter and win the CWIP FESTIVE FLASH SHORT STORY competition. I will write 250 funny words about other awful festive times when things went wrong and it will make you laugh!
P.S. I love CWIP
Now in its fourth successful year, already...
