Top pen prize is offered

A Shrewsbury shop is marking ‘international fountain pen day’ with a new competition and is offering a £300 pen as the prize.

Write Here, which is in the town’s High Street and is the region’s largest retailer of writing instruments, is encouraging people to enter the fun competition to celebrate the event on November 1.

“We would like people to tell us about their plans for fountain pen day and every entry that makes us smile will be entered into a free draw,” said Jade Edwards of Write Here.

The winner will be picked at random and will receive an art deco fountain pen by one of the world’s leading manufacturers, Omas, worth £315.

“It’s a great prize so we hope as many people as possible will take part and be as creative as possible with their entries – we look forward to reading them,” added Jade.
