Pajalic_Daughter1

This quarter, I’m very excited to announce that popular and very generous authors, Wendy Orr and Amra Pajalic will be donating books as prizes.

We’ll also be profiling them on this blog and they will be sharing their writing journey, tips and a fun activity based on their work. So keep watching this space.

Judging is still underway for our first quarter writing competition where one lucky prize winner will receive a fabulous signed copy of one of Felicity Pulman’s books. Results to be announced in the next two weeks. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks to all the fabulous authors who generously share their experiences, their craft and their books with new and young writers.

More information about our current writing competition can be found at “New Writing Competition for Kids and Adults“.

Happy writing:)
