Waimate writer wins SST short story contest

Waimate writer Sue Francis has won the open section of the Sunday Star Times short story award.

Her winning story, The Concentrators, is set in Temuka and she describes it as a coming of age story.

This is Sue’s second writing success this year. She has recently had a story published in the latest volume of Random House’s Best New Zealand Fiction. 

Sue is a classmate in the writing course I am doing at Aoraki Polytech. The win is also a good reflection on our tutor, Diane Brown.
