My First Publication!

Hello everyone.

The purpose of this post is to share some exciting news…

I wrote a 500-word piece of travel writing based around a trip to the Croatian town of Rovinj. I sent it in to The Telegraph‘s weekly travel writing competition, called ‘Just Back’, nearly two weeks ago.

The Croatian town of Rovinj

The winner of the competition receives £200 in a foreign currency of their choice, as well as publication in their daily paper and online.

On Monday (27th February), I received the email telling me that my piece on Croatia had won the week’s competition.

I’m so excited to have my first piece of writing published. The 230 Euros was a nice bonus too!

If you want to enter the competition, the rules and instructions are on The Telegraph‘s website. You need to email the 500 word piece to and include your full name, email address and phone number. Good luck!

Comment below with your thoughts, I’d love to hear what anyone thinks of it.

Thanks for reading.
