LitLinks Creative Writing Awards

By Mr Jason Golding, Head of English

Radford is proud to have two students recognised at the ACT creative writing awards, LitLinks.

Monica Cao (Year 12) was awarded with the highest honour in the competition as winner of the Years 11 and 12 Category in a ceremony this week. Monica’s story Coffee Name has been published on the LitLinks website, along with the judges’ comments.

We also congratulate Liliane Alblas (Year 10), who received a Short List Award in the Years 9 and 10 Category for her story Molly’s Garden.
