Results of Competition One: A Horror Story

Adjudicator, Joseph Freeman, judging the twelve entries said that the overall quality was very pleasing. He gave a comprehensive critique on each story adding that the authors should not be downhearted by any comments as these were intended to improve the writing.
 General points to remember
1. Presentation is very important. Do not have overly large
    margins. Ensure you do not run out of ink.
2. Clarity of prose; avoid over use of complicated writing
     language. Keep it simple
