The Good Samaritan Sisters
Seven young writers—three from the Australian Capital Territory, two from New South Wales, one from Queensland and one from South Australia—have won various prizes in the Good Oil 2017 Young Writers’ Award.
The winning entries across three age categories have just been announced on the website of the Good Samaritan Sisters
Ashleigh Green, Evan Ellis and Alice Priest, all published writers who have written for The Good Oil, formed the judging panel. They based their decisions on the entries which best explored the theme ‘Who is my neighbour?’ in their chosen writing style. In particular, the judges were looking for writing that was topical, engaging, accessible, creative, original and well written.
