And the Writing Wizardry winners are…

Well done to all those children aged nine years and under who entered the Writing Wizardry Prize. The judges enjoyed reading some truly fantastical tales. This made the judging even harder, but a decision was made. Congratulations to:

Writing Wizardry Winner: Shakira Bettencourt for Undercover Animals

Writing Wizardry Runner Up: Finn F Marshall for The Land of MagicĀ 

Special Commendation: Lana Oram forĀ The Land of Food

We all enjoyed Award Winning Children’s Author Ali Sparkes telling us how she started writing and where she gained her inspiration from for her brilliant books like The Shapeshifter series and Frozen in Time.

Shakira wins her height in books, and Undercover Animals and all the other shortlisted stories can be found in the Writing Wizardry book available from the Our Books page.

Keep writing and having fun with words.


The Writing Wizardry Team.
