The standard of the sixteen entries in this contest was outstanding – the writing was excellent, and I think it’s safe to say that all the manuscripts could do well when they are sent out into the world. It was really exciting to see so many well written and exciting novels from New Zealand authors.
I’ve sent comments to everyone who entered, so if you haven’t heard back please do get in touch.
And congratulations to the winners!
