June 2015 Winner Announced - Ryan Glasgo

Congratulations, Ryan Glasgo!

It's with much delight that we announce the winner of our June 2015 Pen Factor Writing Competition. The Rock Fortress was one of the six outstanding finalists shortlisted by our judging panel. Ultimately it was guest judge, Nicholas Shakespeare, who had the final say in selecting our winner, although it was a very close competition.
The warming story of a mischievous boy on a Sri Lankan train was vivid, engaging and beautifully written.

Next, Ryan will receive a full professional feedback service from the chosen consultancy, as well coaching on how to advance his writing career from here.
