Nillumbik Shire Council – Awards and Prizes

Nillumbik Shire Council – Awards and Prizes.

Here you can read Arnold Zable’s (the acclaimed writer, teacher and in this case, judge) comments about the winning stories of the Alan Marshall Awards. During the award night, Arnold gave generous encouragement to all, along with fabulous feedback to the winners… in fact it was almost a writing class with tips and ideas for budding and established writers!

As a writer we often write into a void… so when your work strikes a resonance that echoes back to you acknowledgement of your craft, it is truly gratifying. Thank you Arnold for choosing my story!
