Welcome to the first edition of OzKids in Print for 2006. Where did last year go? The Awards Night for 2005 was held in November and what a great night it was. Check the centre pages of this edition for the ‘Award Winners’ Details.
Please don’t be discouraged if your story or poem isn’t published the first time you enter.
As Paul Collins writes in his editorial in this issue, ‘Sometimes getting your manuscript published is pure luck. You might have a dog in your story, and the editor reading your manuscript might love dogs. For this reason it’s important to realise that persistence is important’.
One thing I have noticed is the number of entries which are based on sadness, loneliness, war and death. They are written well but we need some more lighthearted entries PLEASE! I look forward to more brighter stories and poems in the future. I enjoy reading all the entries.
As a ‘special feature’ in our magazine we will be giving reviews on the newly released novels by our fantastic Author Patrons. Where have they been hiding? These books are fantastic. Read the reviews and find out more!
We have a great year ahead and with all the entries we have received so far, the magazine is going to be packed with some very interesting reading. ENJOY!
Keep on Writing!
