The Winning Writers

So many hopeful authors came to Watsonia Library on Saturday 23 November to find out if they had won the writing competition. We were fortunate to have the judge, Paul Collins, attend to give out the awards and to talk about writing. The biggest advice is that just because you don't win a competition, don't be discouraged. All entrants should be applauded for entering because many writers find it hard to complete stories, so this is good practice.
