I was very fortunate to have been asked to guest present at the IEU Qld and NT Literary Competition Awards. It was a wonderful evening and I very much enjoyed presenting the awards and hearing the first place finalists read a few minutes of their winning work. The depth of talent amongst these young writers was very impressive. The event was also very well run. If you would like to read my speech, it is available here: QLD Literary Competition Awards Speech. Thank you to Alexander Leggett from the QIEU for the following photos.
I encourage all young writers to enter this competition. I believe entries open in March 2016, so start writing now!
