It is a badly kept secret that all of the blog authors at Space on the Bookshelf are also writers, all undergoing the quest as we desperately navigate the slushpile searching for the Writers Holy Grail, a publishing contract, (or at the very least a sniff of interest).
Over the years the four main contributors to the blog, Clare, Jo, Nicki and me have been happy to accrue a bundle of long-listings, shortlisting and the occasional win.
Usually we don’t shout from the rooftops about any writing milestones we may make on Space on The Bookshelf, but today we have received some great news that warrants a little bit of a shelfie celebration.
Our Lovely Nicki, has made it on to the The Chicken House Children’s Fiction Competition Short List!
It Is an amazing accomplishment, and we are all totally thrilled, and we hope you will all join us in celebrating Nicki’s achievement and wishing her luck in the next stage of the competition.
