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 Kindergarten to Year 2 Category for 2019 is Debra Tidball, author of the award-winning The Scared Book and When I See Grandma. Debra is also known for her stunning picture books which she believes have no age restrictions. She also has flash-fiction and short stories published in various anthologies including The School Magazine. In her spare time, Debra also reviews children's books on Sydney radio 103.2FM and interviews authors on the Just Write for Kids Blog

We couldn't be more thrilled that Debra has taken time out of her busy schedule to judge the Kindergarten to Year 2 category for 2019.
