The Bridport Prize is not responsible for the content of external websites.

"It was nothing short of amazing to win 3rd Prize in the Bridport. I often 'write in the dark' with no audience - so winning was affirmation that I'm not only a writer but a good writer at that.

The Bridport Prize IS a big deal, I mean a really BIG deal because it's an internationally renowned and recognised prize so winning meant that my writing is 'good enough' not just nationally but globally. Since my win I've started looking for an agent and possible publishers for my work. Winning the Bridport Prize has given me the confidence I lacked and the inspiration and encouragement I needed - yes, I've got my mojo working. Expect to see me in print!!"
