The University of Roehampton sponsored this year’s Short Story Competition at the Wimbledon Bookfest. There were a number of great entries demonstrating a wealth of talent in the local area and “set the judges a difficult task of creating a shortlist”, said Chair of Judging Panel, Tony Kane.
Winner of the audience vote was Caroline Brett, whose witty 250-word entry, entitled “Dress Code” about a catty exchange between two women, clinched the £100 prize on the night. Professor Paul O’Prey was on hand to present the prize. Congratulations also to Ursula Round of the University's Library Services. Her "The Letter" story was not only one of the forty stories published by the event organisers, but was also one of the final twelve shortlisted for the prize.
As well as presenting the short story competition winner, Professor Paul O'Prey, delivered a lecture on Wimbledon-born war poet Robert Graves who Professor O'Prey had assisted after studying at Oxford.
