Finally the wait is over! It's been an exciting few months here at Dragonfly and we are very happy to share with you the winners of the 2017 Dragonfly Tea Short Story Competition. This is the third year of our competition, run in association with the Henley Literary Festival, and we received an amazing 1300 entries across the adult and children's categories on the themes of Journey and Maps.
After a tough judging process, our shortlisted entrants were invited to a very special Awards Ceremony at Henley Town Hall, where Dragonfly's Georgia Ginsberg and short story judge Helen Lederer announced this year's winners to a rapt audience. See below for the names of our worthy winners!
