Young Ada Short Story Prize 2016
Congratulations to Ruby Carmody (12A) whose short story “Hurricane” has been shortlisted for the Young Ada Short Story Prize 2016.
The competition is open to writers who live, work or study in Melbourne’s western suburbs, and is one of several writing contests named after Australian colonial writer, Ada Cambridge.
The Young Adas were first held in 2014 and are open to entrants between the ages of 14-18 years; the competition aims to support these writers’ aspirations and bring their works to a wider audience.
Ruby’s short story showcased her talent for highly evocative and descriptive writing. The winner of the $250 prize money will be announced at the Williamstown Literary Festival on the 18th of June.
Well done for being shortlisted, Ruby, and good luck!
