Kelpies Prize 2011 (a week to go…)

Posted on 11/08/2011 in The Kelpies Prize

All the entries have been read, the judges have deliberated and the announcement of the winner of the Kelpies Prize is just one week away! While the shortlisted authors nervously await next week’s ceremony, the Discover Kelpies team are enjoying planning for the big day!

Today our giant cheque arrived (yes our winner gets a real giant cheque like on a game show) with the winner’s name in big letters. To keep our secret we’ve wrapped it up in brown paper and hidden it in a cupboard. Ha ha – no-one will find it there!

Kelpies Prize 2011 cheque - Top Secret

I wonder who will be taking it home next Thursday. Will it be Alette Willis’ quirky story about a golem who lives on Corstorphine Hill – How to Make a Golem (and Terrify People)? Or Daniela Sacerdoti’s story of supernatural trouble-shooters – The Really Weird Removals Company? Or maybe it’ll be Roy Gill’s tale of a parallel daemon dimension – The Resurrection Spell?

Before you get too excited, that’s the books listed in alphabetically order – we aren’t giving anything away!
