Dr Melanie Whipman, who ran a successful Creative Writing workshop at the college before Christmas, returned this week to present prizes to the winners of the short story competition. First prize went to Michael Galvin for 'Captain's Log.' Evelyn Roebuck came second with 'The Statement' and Sara Klusch was awarded third place for 'In Search of Christmas.’ Hannah Fitzgerald’s story 'Nail Marks on a Wall’ was highly commended. Melanie praised all the stories for being of a very high standard. We hope she will return to judge next year’s competition!
