Tenerife resident wins prestigious writing award
Tenerife resident and British copywriter, Tara Denholm-Smith, has won a hugely prestigious award from The Epoch Times in New York, the renowned publication with a global reach of 55 million people.
The article, submitted to the ‘Inspiring the World Journalism Competition’ hosted by the Epoch Times, so impressed judges that they awarded Tara second place and a cash prize of $3,000.
Open to worldwide entries, editors for the annual writing competition requested submissions for true-life stories of compassion, redemption and triumph in the face of adversity.
Tara’s short story entitled, “The year you didn’t break me”, was based upon her own recent experience of abandonment, betrayal and recovery, following her husband’s affair with her best friend. The story has since received thousands of hits on social media.
After a busy period rebuilding her life, Tara retrained as a professional copywriter and went on to set up her own copywriting business, Composing Copy LLP, based in London.
Tara, who now resides and works from the municipality of Arona, Tenerife, helps small businesses across the world to sell their goods and services through well written content and copy.
Says Tara, “Writing is a very cathartic and creative activity. This process helped me emotionally and gave me the confidence to move forward and base my new career upon a passion for words. I’m so proud to have not only overcome the obstacles that life threw at me, but to win an award purely judged upon the quality of my writing, is beyond my wildest dreams. It’s a great start to 2018! I want my story to bring inspiration and hope to anyone else who may be struggling with life challenges too.”
