It sort of proves that anyone can be the next J.K. Rowling. You can actually achieve that dream, it is not impossible as it might seem.
It’s a great initiative and it gives young writers the chance to demonstrate their skills and their abilities and to be able to live their dream.
It was a great experience. I’ve never been exposed to anything like this before. My English teacher told me about the competition and I was pretty intrigued because I have a passion for writing.
Absolutely blown away by the writing of so many of the students who entered. Incredible stories!

I think competitions like this are important as they allow teens to express their voice during what can be an emotional and turbulent time in their lives. This competition encourages teens to value and hone their writing abilities and to be confident in the expression of their ideas and imaginations. This is one of the reasons I love to write YA fiction
