The 2018 Northern Beaches Young Writers' Competition is now open. Each year hundreds of children enter for the chance to win great prizes and have their work judged by local authors.
This year the judge for the K-2 category is librarian, children’s author and general book enthusiast, Rebecka Sharpe Shelberg. Rebecka lives with her husband, three small mischievous children, two fluffy dogs, two goldfish and a bearded dragon. Though she is obsessed with books of all kinds, she is particularly enamoured with picture books and would happily spend an entire day in a good book store. Rebecka’s picture books include 'Reflection’and ‘Visiting You’.
