12 May 2022. The results of the annual UK WriteMentor Novel and Picture Book Awards for unagented and unpublished writers were announced in a live ceremony. Imagine the shock when judges Clare Wallace and Lydia Silver chose – out of over 1,000 entries – my picture book text, The Magic in Ming’s Hands and Aoife Doyle’s novel, The Music Weaver’s Call as the winners! I feel such immense gratitude to Stuart White, the founder of WriteMentor, and his team as well as the kidlit writerly community for inspiring, encouraging and supporting kidlit creators everywhere. The replay of the awards ceremony can be seen on YouTube here. It was worth staying up until 2 a.m. for!
