    Many thanks to all who entered The Common Thread Short Story Competition, and my apologies for the time it’s taken. I have just finished putting the results up on my website and sending out feedback reports to those who requested them. I’m a bit of a clutz as far as sending emails is concerned, and have realised that I sent the draft feedback report to some people rather than the full report. If you received a report with “Feeback” without the d, then you have a draft. The winners are: Stephen Reilly (1st) and David Blissett (2nd). If you are still waiting on a feedback report let me know: pippa@pippakay.com. Some handwritten email addresses are difficult to read.
