One of our current year 12 students has been shortlisted in the Somerset Storyfest for her novella – All My Reasons Not to Die. Manuri is being flown to the Gold Coast for the announcement of the winner and to immerse herself into literacy for a full three days! She's in the top three, which is impressive considering the competition is open nationwide. It is a wonderful opportunity for serious student writers to be encouraged in their literary growth.
Manuri was contacted by the Chief Judge, Dr Micheal Brohier, with winners to be announced at the Storyfest Writers Festival from Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 March.
Keep an eye out for the announcement of the winner.
