This is an Under 18s award. The award is divided into 3 categories: Fiction, Non-fiction and Poetry, and I won the fiction category. Along with 14 others shortlisted, I attended a masterclass with award-winning author James Phelan, and a meet-and-greet with John Marsden. Winners were also presented with a selection of young-adult titles from Hatchette Publishing, and $500. The award is in its tenth year, and was judged by best-selling Australian YA author John Marsden, and the Publishing Director of Hatchette Australia, Fiona Hazard. Read more
