Wales Young Writers Contest 2019

Because there were not enough entries to make up a long list, or to produce an e-book of stories, the judges have used the discretion given to them in the rules and decided not to award any prizes or publish the entries.

We had hoped to produce a quality e-book that would spur young people to enter writing competitions in future. As the whole purpose of the contest was to encourage young people to write, we have decided to postpone any decision about a replacement contest until the committee has had enough time to discuss possible ways of attracting more entrants.

Thank you to those who entered.
