Congratulations to Year 9 student, Natasha Nette,  who recently earned the Affirm Press Award for Best Young Writer, in the Sisters in Crime Scarlet Stiletto Awards. 

Natasha’s submission, Signs of Life, a story told through the ghostly eyes of a young mother, was judged in the under-19yo category. Natasha says that she has more ideas for stories than she has time to write them down – so we look forward to reading more of her works in the future!
