Congratulations to Jayda Tram and Chris Van Ingen, the winners of the newsXpress creative writing competition for 17 and under and open age groups respectively.
We are grateful for the many entries received of short stories and poems. They were a delight to read, making the judging challenging, and taking longer than we expected.
Jayda’s piece, The Back Door, was a wonderful short story will of wonder and fantasy. What a treat.
Chris’ poem, Breaking News Agency, was inspiring and heartwarming, connecting with hopes and dreams, which can become a reality.
We have contacted both winners to arrange the $1,000 prize they each have won.
We apologise again for being a few days late in announcing the winners.
