In October 2017, Phoenix Proofreading announced a ‘Cosy Night In Short Story Competition’ on local social media. The entrants were allowed to choose their genre but were set a word count limit. The competition winner would be given gifts from collaborators: a luxury scented candle from Elizabeth Manford of the Wax House Candle Company, a beautiful rainbow heart cushion from Cath Bamber of Little Things to Cherish and Nigel Stewart’s book ‘Colouring In’. The competition closed at the end of October and judging took place. Viv Ainslie, owner of Phoenix Proofreading, invited guest judges to assist in the decision-making process. Eventually it was decided that Corrina Lunn’s story ‘Time Stands Still for No Man’ was the winner and the runner up was Linda Hampton. It was felt that Corrina’s story created a raft of emotions in the reader in a hauntingly beautifully written way. Her story is produced here by Ainslie and Fishwick Publishing Ltd: an Indie publishing company with a difference. Viv Ainslie is Editor in Chief and is partnered with Steve Fishwick, Technical and Creative Director.
