The 2019 Northern Beaches Young Writers' Competition is now open. Students in Kindergarten to Year 12 have until Wednesday 7 August to submit their story using this year's theme word, wild. Every year we have been so fortunate to have such talented and experienced writers judge the competition and this year is no exception. 

Judging the Year 3 to 4 Category is Anna Fienberg. Anna is a beloved Australian author who enjoys reading, writing and a good cup of coffee. She has published many best-selling titles in the categories of children's literature and young adult fiction while living locally on the Northern Beaches. Notably, Anna is the author of the Tashi series, stories that portray Anna's talent as a story teller and her passion for stories full of adventure and wonder. She is also the former editor of The School Magazine and has won the Children's Book of the Year Award for both younger and older readers. 

We couldn't be more thrilled that Anna is back for another year to judge the Year 3 to 4 category for 2019.
