Kyogle writing competition winners to be revealed
WANT to hear what makes a story a winning story?
The winners of the Helen and Harry Flower Writing Competition, sponsored by Kyogle Council, will be announced on May 7 at the Kyogle Library at 10am.
Kyogle Mayor Daniel Mulholland will congratulate the winners and the judges who worked hard to pick the best stories.
There were three sections:
In the children 8 to 11 section, the judge was retired school teacher Karlyn Brooks from Tenterfield.
In the children 12 to 15 section, author Jacqueline McCormick from Collins Creek was a judge
In the adult section of the writing competition, the judge was author Melitta Luck from Kyogle.
The judges have supplied comments to be read to the meeting to reveal why they chose the winning stories. Winners will read their stories, where possible.
Anthony Flower, the son of Helen and Harry Flower, will read some of Helen Flower’s poetry.
The Kyogle Writers meet the first Saturday in every month at the Kyogle Library from 10am to noon.
New members welcome.
