Transforming Communities is the theme of the 2020 Waterloo Festival Writing Competition. It is also the title of the e-book that contains the winning entries. We chose these because they tell a good story, have a strong voice, and are imaginative in their interpretation of the theme. The writers present us with characters that are believable and rounded. The stories all contain a pleasing narrative balance. Entrants were asked to produce a short story or a monologue in 1,000 words or fewer. Less is certainly more here. Style is diverse and each story is completely different from the others. This delightful English language anthology of literary fiction comes to you for under £2.50.
