Competition winner announced

First person fortnight

The First Person Fortnight competition was a huge success, we had more entries than I even imagined! Before I tell you the winners, I want to thank the judges for all their hard work.

The winner

Can you please imagine a drumroll in your head when you read this for dramatic effect?

The winner was the story Not All Bad Out Here written by Aimee Shields Yankowski.

I’ll be making contact with Aimee, and sending her the prize, this lovely one-of-a-kind First Person Fortnight coffee mug! Aimee, I hope you think of it as a trophy when you’re using it to drink hot beverages. Or soup. Or cold drinks. I just hope you’re proud! 😉
