Come along to hear debut novelist Megan Hunter ‘in conversation’ with Senior Member Mary Buckley talking about her book The End We Start From (Picador, May 2017) and her writing career.
The book is described by the publisher as ‘a story of new motherhood in a terrifying setting: a familiar world made dangerous and unstable, its people forced to become refugees’.
It has received glowing early endorsements from authors such as Jim Crace, Evie Wyld and Tracey Chevalier, and was recently described by The Bookseller as ‘a very exciting debut from a hugely talented young writer… a stunning achievement’.
The judge Helen Marshall, teacher of Creative Writing at Anglia Ruskin University, announced the winners for this year's competition that was themed 'Rituals'. All authors were present and in a vibrant and stimulating evening read the stories to us.
- First prize was given to 'Giver of Gifts' by Michael English,
- second prize to 'Beryl' by Les Brookes,
- and third prize to 'Snowy Saturdays' by Helen Culnane.
Awarded with 'highly recommended' were
- 'Lingering' by Siobhan Carew
- 'Bury the Truth' by Jane Phillips
- 'The Three King's Ritual', by Nicola Gifford-Cowan
Congratulations to the winners. The stories can be read on this website and will soon be published as an e-book.
