The launch of the Dorset Writers' Prize is running a little behind our original schedule.
We lost someone we love just a few of weeks ago, and it is taking time to get our lives back on track.
Fortunately, having made no announcements, set no firm dates, we were able to put of plans for the competition on hold for a while.
Now we feel able to get it underway again, and we will be announcing the launch any day now.
We have set our submission deadline for midnight, January 7, 2018, and look forward to receiving entries.
This is by way of an update and (second) test post for the blog.
