SIWC Writing Contest

For several years now, I have coordinated the Surrey International Writing Conference contest. It is one of my favourite parts of the whole conference. Writers from all over the world submit their work in four categories -- Poetry, Non-Fiction, Storytellers Award (Fiction) and, new this year, Writing for Young People.

Today I took the anthology we have compiled of the winning entries to the printers. It will be ready for the big announcement on Friday night -- and this year's winners will have giant, thousand-dollar smiles on their faces.

But the best part is the cachet that comes with the award. This is an awesome writing credit -- winners and runners-up are selected from a hugely talented pool of writers. So best of luck to all who entered -- and sharpen your pencils for next year!
