Congratulations to Erin Lannie of St Joseph's Academy whose winning short story, together with 8 shortlisted entries, can be read here: http://www.hansel.org.uk/fundraising/2013-short-story-competition-winners

On 26th April this year, our first ever Hansel Day, we launched our first every short story competition. S1 pupils at secondary schools across Ayrshire were asked to write a 500 word short story with the theme 'overcoming'. Our thanks to everyone who took part - you gave the judges a very difficult task!

Erin wins a Kindle and a workshop with Lari Don, award winning children's author, who was one of the judges along with Blanche Nicolson, our Practice Development Director, and Caron MacPherson, Manageress of Waterstones in Ayr.

Such was the enthusiasm and talent of everyone who took part that we will be launching the Ayrshire Secondary School Short Story Competition 2014 very soon!
