Special Mention

A special mention goes to Fly on the Wall by Eleanor Drewett – it was only when we had nailed down the shortlist did we realise that Fly on the Wall was written by eleven year old Eleanor from Bristol.
Eleanor wowed the judges with her work, and her brave choice of prose composition, but unfortunately it missed out on the collection, but it is clear to see that Eleanor has a bright future in creative writing and beat some very fine stories to earn her place on the long list – we are hopeful of publishing it in the pages of STORGY Kids in the near future!
Eleanor, a smashing entry and we hope that this competition helps you take the next steps with your writing. Many congratulations!


The STORGY team will now commence pre-production of a limited edition chap book so stay tuned for further announcements as to where you can read and enjoy the 2019 Flash Fiction Finalists & Winners.
