Our Reader for October’s competition, themed ‘false alarm’ was Margaret Gallop.
Margaret enjoys teaching creative writing to children and now enjoys supporting adults in their writing as well and helping people to put their own stories into words.
About the winning story this month, Maybe Next Time, by Ella Syverson, our Reader said:
This was a clear and vivid response to the words ‘False Alarm’. It was memorable, and summoned up the rising panic I feel about being followed. I enjoyed the little twist at the end.
