Trireme Award

This month, shamefully, we had an exciting challenge in the Trireme Award for the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars".

Cat World took an early and promising last place in this backward race by offering £15 per thousand words. Miaow!

But they were met at the starting line by This England, generously offering £25 per thousand words - including illustration. They claim a circulation of 180,000.
