Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'It's a great pleasure to see young people exercising their storytelling instincts. During the twenty years in which the award has been given in my name I've had the privilege of witnessing this stubborn, lovely impulse as it lives on in a new generation. Whether they're writing feverish fantasy or gritty realism these young writers are coming to terms with their language and their lives, using stories to shape or unpack what they know and what they fear and what they hope for.' - Tim Winton.
