Greetings, aspiring writers!

This is open to all young people who live, study or work in the City of Boroondara. Creative Write-it is conveniently located in this area, so if you would like a little support in writing and preparing your entry, please feel free to get in touch!
Entries close Friday 30 August 2019.
We are extremely proud to share a story which was recognised in last year's awards, written by a former young Creative Write-it author, Minduli.
From Minduli's mum, Deepa:
"Your teaching, advice and influence helped greatly to improve her writing skills. You put Minduli on the correct path and taught her how to structure her thoughts and imaginative ideas for a better outcome at a very young age. Thank you again for your wonderful work and effort which improved Minduli’s literary skills."
Minduli's short story, A Wrinkle in Destiny, won 3rd Prize in the 'Middle Prose' category, Year 7-9. We're absolutely thrilled to celebrate her success, and to have been a part of her writing journey!
Minduli was kind enough to let us share her story with you below.
P.S. You can also find The Significant Warrior, a novel written and published by Minduli during her time at the studio in our bookshop!
