Writing Wizardry Competition 2020 Shortlist!

We are delighted to be able to announce the shortlist for the Writing Wizardry Competition 2020.

We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of entries this year and would like to thank everyone for their amazing pieces of work. There were so many awesome stories that trying to cut it down to a shortlist was incredibly hard.

Because we are unable to publish a physical book this year (due to our offices still being closed), we are planning to publish an online  PDF ‘book’ of  the entire shortlist online as soon as possible. Watch this space for more news on that. And on our winners!
