Mostly Books inklewriter story competition

A few weeks ago, Mostly Books, an independent bookshop in Adelaide, South Australia, ran a competition for short stories by young writers made using inklewriter. The entries were judged by recent Creative Writing graduates from Flinders University and the results are now in, and we're pretty impressed, and wanted to share them here.

The winning stories

There were two categories - one for 10-14 year olds, and one for 15-18 year olds.

The winner of the 15-18 year old category Jakob Maddocks whose piece Fou Roux is a long and detailed insight into the life and work of Vincent Van Gogh and does some pretty interesting things with point of view. In second place was The First Day of Spring by Eloise Quinn-Valentine.

The winner in the 10-14 age group was William Physentzou with A Violet Forever, and the runner-up was Jack and Sophie’s Life by Bailey Paior-Smith.

Try for yourself!

We created inklewriter to help people write interactive stories who might never have thought it possible before, and it's great to be able to encourage young writers. inklewriter is free, so you try it yourself if you want to.

And it's not only being used by new writers - our most recent app, Kelley Armstrong's Cainsville Files, was written by Kelley, a New York Times #1 bestselling author using inklewriter herself.

If you try any of the stories, do let us know what you think!
