|Because the standard of work was so good this year, the Judge, Adrian Fox found it almost impossible to choose one overall winner.
However there was only room for one winner so he selected a Piece by Hanya Copley, with 'My Child', a very powerful poem.
He selected two runners up, Palm O'Neill her short story, 'The Wake' and William Murphy with 'One' another short story.
He also selected 'Nemesis' by christopher Slack, our only under age entry.
