I was thrilled to be invited to be a judge at the Warringah Library Young Writers’ Competition 2011. Presentation will be at Forestville Library. Other judges are Karen Robertson, Jenny Hale and Felicity Pulman.

There were a lot of really terrific stories entered. Finding the winners is a very hard thing to do. I congratulate everyone who entered. Even if you don’t win this time… it’s worth it to keep entering your stories. Competitions are a great way to set yourself deadlines. The more stories you write, the better you get at writing.
