I had so much fun reading through all your entries, whittling them down to a short list of... 12. Not the world's shortest short list, but a girl does her best. There were so many fab pitches. From the humorous to the heartbreaking, the witty to the writerly, the poetic to the purely mischievous. The best of them ticked all the boxes on my originality/angle/voice wishlist, as well as showing the benefits of some research.
So, without further ado, I hand over to Valerie Khoo, director of the Sydney Writers' Centre who, along with her team, has chosen the worthy winner.
"It was great to see so many wonderful entries in this blogging competition," she says. "We've been thrilled at the quality and sincerity of comments. We wish we could have awarded more prizes - but there can be only one winner. Congratulations Dovic - we look forward to seeing her at the Centre or in our online course soon!"
Congratulations indeed Ms Dovic - enjoy your Magazine Writing Stage 1 course, and thanks again to everyone who entered.
