Ever been to Italy?

Ever walked through the back streets of Naples....or listened to the quiet of a Venetian backwater after dark...or the stars of the opera at Verona...or strolled up and down, up and down, up and down the strand at Lido di Jesolo after supper...
The Posara Prize - run by Watermill Courses in Tuscany - is a free to enter writing competition for original, unpublished pieces of no more than 2,000 words, with the theme of 'A Foreigner in Italy'. The work can be fiction or non-fiction: the important thing is to capture the emotion of Italy, as seen through an outsider's eyes.
You can write about the people, the countryside, art, architecture, food and wine – in fact, anything that makes Italy interesting, inspiring, exasperating or even frightening.
The winner will receive a prize of £1,000 which isn't at all bad...but the closing date is quite soon Monday February 28 so get your pen and write...
