WANTED: Your creative writing for Ripples Summer edition

We’re planning a larger July/August edition to celebrate good writing by Ripples readers. We are looking for short stories, essays and poems. No more than 2,000 words, but shorter is preferred.

We will need your contribution in writing, preferably by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Deadline is Friday 3rd June (a week ahead of our regular copy deadline).

Tell us your name, approximate age (!), the town or village where you live in the Ripples distribution area, and a little about why you wrote it.

We will publish as many as we think are suitable and that we can fit in the enlarged magazine.

Last summer, we appealed for scripts suitable for radio dramas. Due to a delay caused by assisting to relocate the community radio station in Swindon, we are getting many of these underway now.
