of

Ross Welford’s

Re-Writing Competition

THE WINNER OF THIS YEAR’S COMPETITION (2019-20) IS

TIME HEIST”  BY EITAN LOO, AND HIS FRIENDS ADITYA AND ABDUL FROM THE BRITISH SCHOOL, KUALA LUMPUR

Ross commented: “I loved reading all of the entries for this year’s competition.  They ranged from the very short and punchy to longer, more thoughtful tales.  “Time Heist” was one of the longer ones, and it was fun and interesting throughout.  The three co-authors put so much time and effort into creating a plot with funny characters and original ideas.  Well done Eitan, Aditya and Abdul!”
