Did you know? Author Trisha King was a winner of the prestigious Sunday Times short story competition, in 1991. Here, she describes what it was like to win, and to study from a master...
The prize was Deborah Moggach. At least, it was for me. Formally, the prize was a week’s workshop with Deborah Moggach at the Hay-on-Wye Festival. As a lover of her work, when I saw the Sunday Times Short Story competition I couldn’t resist.
If you don’t know her name, you’ll certainly have heard of her work, most recently the film The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and the soon-to-be-released Tulip Fever. Deborah was a hoot, full of fun and always up for some gossip.
I urge you to read her books.
The competition was arranged by Sunday Times columnist Penny Perrick (I touch her hem in gratitude for giving a chance to amateur writers). We thought it was such a wonderful name that we invented a company for her: the Penny Perrick Secretarial Agency.
