The City of Derby's writing competition for 2007 is now open - I give you this early notice for two reasons. One is that I reckon the best editor a writer ever gets is time - so write your story and set it aside for three months before reading it again with a fresh perspective, redraft from that, then submit. The other reason? I'm the competition's short story judge this time around. I look forward to a summer of reading your work a year from now.
