13th Budding Writers Project

On Tuesday evening I decked myself out to go to the formal prize giving ceremony of Marshall Cavendish's 13th Budding Writers Project at the Pod at the National Library. I was honoured to have been one of the judges and I have to say that I was impressed by the talent these young writers possess.

The winners were:
  • Bottle Diary, written & illustrated by Xu Zhuo, Teck Ghee Primary School
  • Super Shroom, written by Chiang Yan Xin & Kwa Mei Jun, and illustrated by Chew Xiu Yan, Nanyang Girls’ High School

And the MOST CREATIVE & ORIGINAL WORK went to Willy and the Warthog, written & illustrated by Claire Tan Wen Yen, Methodist Girls’ School.

Kenneth Quek accepting a token of appreciation for
I have to two other authors who were finalists and who I feel have bright futures as authors. And they are potential best-selling crime author Charles Windle for his story and A Clueless Murder and Joshua Leong for The Story of Wormy. Congratulations to winners, the finalists and all the participants. Well done!
