September 2013 Young Adult Judge’s Report

Some interesting writing and subjects. All of the stories showed much work, commitment and determination, which is commendable. Therefore it was with much trepidation that commentary was made as all the writers show great promise and should in no way be discouraged from further endeavours, or view criticism negatively, remembering constructive criticism is levelled against the protagonist and story line and not at the writer.

Story analysis and feedback means the writer has invoked deep response in the reader, which is the object of writing it in the first place, so no matter what, you are well on your way to achieving your goals. Congratulations to all, may your muse be with you and you continue strengthened.
