A lot of what you read written by me tends to rhyme because they are songs. I've been writing poetry & songs since I was in my early teens and recently I've started wanting to write books for children and young adults. I am currently undertaking a writing course to learn more about the craft and to develop my skills. I write about things in life that are important to me or about my feelings about situations I find myself or friends in. I also like to write fiction and tales for children.
Thanks to everyone who took part! Our judges said, "This was really tough, with some excellent entries. Between us, we had a list of nigh-on 20 possible winners/runners up and we could have easily had a dozen in the final count. As it is we have bashed it down to one winner - and this writer really worked on her piece and took the advice offered to her and acted on it"
