Words from a bench, Winter 2014






Submissions for Words from a bench for the winter competition were on the theme of ‘Crossed paths’. The best seven entries are available to read below.

Although we typically encourage pieces about the out of doors and nature, for this round we deliberately left it ambiguous and received submissions which interpreted the theme literally and metaphorically. As a consequence, the chosen entries have a range in tone and content which is wider (and in some cases darker) than you would normally find on the site. We hope you appreciate the change for winter and welcome any feedback.
