The STAN TOMLIN AWARD for Story Writing

If we wish to take our ancestors’ lives beyond the fundamental when and where they existed, we need to consider the possibility of writing down more about their lives. It is with this at heart that the Society holds an annual writing competition for its members.

Entries of up to 2,000 words are accepted with a closing date in October. All submissions are judged by the Committee and the winner is announced at the Christmas Meeting, amidst all the festivities. A plaque is awarded and the winning entries are published in the HRFHS Journal.

The subject can be from any era and written in any style but must be a member of the author’s tree. It must also be factual in content!

The competition is open to Members only and full details are in the Members’ Area.
