****Dear LEAPA Members and Friends****
We wish to thank all those who submitted a total of sixty-one (61!) short stories to our REAL Short Story Competition! All entries were received or postmarked on or before the deadline, Monday 15 June 2020.

Our 4-person judging panel is already hard at work assessing the stories and hopes to come to a conclusion as soon as possible but, given early reports about the high quality of entries in general, choosing prizewinners and highly commended entries among them all will not be easy!

We hope to be able to announce the results before too long, but it is not yet possible to specify a date for this.

Once we are allowed to start holding events at the Foyer again, we hope to hold a series of events at which as many stories as possible will be read in public.

Please check back for more information and updates or contact us at!
