Nova Writes, the WFNS’s competition for unpublished manuscripts, is thriving, with 45 per cent more entries than last year. All of our readers and judges remarked on the high quality of entries this year.

We rely on the expertise of our members to provide meaningful feedback to our entrants who are judged blind. Thank you for the care and commitment provided by this year’s 13 readers and four judges. A big thank you also to Annick MacAskill, the WFNS’s programming and membership officer, for organizing the competition. It’s a massive job.
