Welcome to Felixstowe Scribblers

Thursday, August 23, 2007


Playwright, local actor and valued member of Felixstowe Scribblers, Tony Shearman is the current holder of The Bill Budner Trophy after his short story "Stevie and the Kid" was adjudged the best of the evening in June.

The quarterly competition requires each attending writer to produce an anonymous short story that would be collected and read out by another Scribbler. At the end of the readings, each writer votes for their first three choices. The votes are then counted, the winner announced and the trophy presented and accordingly engraved by Mr Cobbler.

Awarded in memory of Bill Budner, a Felixstowe Scribbler who died suddenly on Tuesday 14th February 2006. Bill joined Felixstowe Scribblers in August of 2005 and quickly made a lot of friends within the group. He enjoyed his writing and produced some prolific words in his short stories. His mild manner and quiet voice vividly portrayed every word that he wrote. In another competition run by his widow Maureen in memory of Bill, the winner was Belinda Janz who is now back in her native Australia. She donated her prize money to her friends the Scribblers and suggested this competition be run in Bill's memory.

The new competition will take place at our next meeting, Tuesday 4th September.
