The winner of the monologue competition: Pinkie Plays the Blues by Babs Stevenson. Babs writes:
I am a veterinary surgeon and writer living in Orkney. I enjoy playing with monologues and dialogues in my writing and have written a few sketches, some of which have been performed in Glasgow. I also like adding a bit of humour if I can. Another hobby is listening to music and I have combined that with my veterinary background to write my first novel 'The Organist' which will be published by Yolk Publishing early next year.
Many congratulations to Babs. Condolences to those who almost made it. Her monologue has been recorded and included on the Monologues page and on Soundcloud. We wish her success with her novel.
