I’m not going to lie, there were a lot of emails exchanged with the NITH judges over this award (Cheeky – The Ed). It was great to see three highly original takes on Jason’s piece, and congratulations should go out to all our entrants.

However there can only be one winner and I think it’s no surprise that it’s NITH’s rising star Amber McGlothin.

Amber’s elegant prose and gentle characterisation set up a clear, honest dialogue between two very different people. No easy feat. We hope this win, her third now, will push Amber’s emerging talent onto bigger and better things!
