The inspiring story of the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize made it into the Bridport and Lyme News today.

Editor in Chief Simon West chatted to reporter David Bol recently and said he believes the competition proved popular because entrants were rewarded by having a tree planted in their name in their Word Forest in Bore, Kenya and some of the entry money was also used to build an urgently needed classroom at Kundeni Primary School.

The winners of the Magic Oxygen Literary Prize (or MOLP as it is fondly known) will be announced at a special ceremony at The Hub between 11am and 3pm on Saturday as part of the first ever Lyme Literary Festival.

“The Literary Festival is absolutely vital to the town – I have no idea of why there has never been one in the past,” concluded Simon.
