Writers Of The Future–Young Writer Anthology 2014

YW anthology cover_fractalsWorcestershire LitFest and Rotary D1100 eClub’s first anthology of the Young Writer entries in this year’s June competition was launched at St Swithun’s Institute in December 2014.

Competition prizewinners read their stories of up to 300 words based on the theme Before the War or A Prelude to War.

All but two of the shortlisted entries in the competition were present:

Lizzie Austen The Canteen
Amelia Davies High School Armageddon
Anton De Vos The War Of Entoonville
Matt Hall Prelude To War
Charlotte Morgan All’s Fair In Love And Fashion

These stories are the first in the anthology followed by entries selected by the editors.

The book is available on Amazon both as a paperback and as an eBook.

The judges asked us to say how impressed they were by the quality of the entries and said that there was little to choose between the winning and other highly placed entries in each category.
