Joy of the Pen 2014 Application form!

Here it is! The Joy of the Pen 2014 application form! This year we are asking people to submit electronically if at all possible (it makes it much easier for us!). All you have to do is complete the form (you may have to download it if you are using Firefox), save  it and then email it as an attachment (along with your work in WORD or RTF format) to Please remember NOT to put your name on your work, just the title, as all work is judged anonymously. If you have any trouble, please contact Emma at the library for help (please note that we are accepting paper submissions if we really have to but it just helps us enormously if we receive them electronically).
