Judge’s comments:

An Old Fashioned Girl – A highly amusing and well-crafted story, particularly in your summing up of the different types of people who feature in the story, from the yuppie parents to the trendy schoolgirls and the old fashioned Yvonne and Henry.

Wonderfully entertaining.

Port Writers Highly commended

Judge’s comments:

The ‘D’ Word – A well written and touching story. Although it doesn’t meet the standard definition of a short story, I feel it deserves recognition.
