Verbolatry Laugh-a-Riot Contest 2016 Shortlist announced!

Judging for our very first writing-related humour contest is now complete.

The wait is nearly over. Our awesome judges have given their verdict and the scores have been tallied. Thank you to everyone who participated, whether as an entrant, promoter, sponsor or judge. You're fabulous. Your interest means there's hope and encouragement out there for writers and artists to continue creating good works in good humour!
