Future Stars - THE WINNERS!
I am so excited to reveal to you the winners of my Future Stars competition!
It's been amazing - over 200 entries, tons of awesome talent and one very tough decision for me. In the end, I've chosen seven Future Stars because the entries were so good and I just couldn't choose between the last three. So two of my Magnificent Seven have been offered scholarships and five regular places. I'm not sure if they'll be as excited to have to put up with me for a year as I am to work with them!
There were also a group of entrants who were so good that I wished I could take them all on. As a way of inspiring them, I will be contacting them in the next few days to offer something I hope will inspire them and encourage them to pursue their writing dream. Read on after the vlog below to see who those people are...
So, without further ado, here are my magnificent seven!
Congratulations to Dominique Hall, Emma Warburton, Ritzi Cortez, Neal Doran, Emily Glenister, Millie McGarrick and Kate Rhead, who I will be mentoring for the next twelve months!
The lovely writers I will be contacting this week are:
Alan Geoffrey Smith
Laura E. James
Massive congratulations to everyone and I'll be in touch soon!
