Isle of Jura Retreat Programme Update

Galleycat has provided some interesting follow-up on another new literary prize, the Isle of Jura Writer's Retreat. This award will be familiar to our newsletter subscribers, since I listed it in our January 2007 issue, and to those who have purchased our guide to no-cost literary contests and competitions, where it's also included.
