Our new judge for the final quarter of this year is Iain Pattison, who also judges the Writers Bureau Short Story Competition. As you will see from his judge’s page, Iain is a much sought-after competition judge. An author, journalist and writer of fiction, he brings years of experience in the writing field to the task of judging competitions and we are thrilled he has agreed to judge ours.
