We had a fantastic response to our 20th Anniversary Award Competition with a large number of students, from all over the world, sending in entries. It was brilliant to hear from current and old students alike. But the most amazing part for us at The Writers Bureau was the warmth and sincerity that shone through for WB and our tutors.

Picking a winner was tremendously difficult. You'll see why when you read the top entries. Enjoy!
