Announcing the Finalists for the Taradiddle Youth Writing Contest
Greetings from Guardian Whiskers!
Imagine that you wake up one morning, and discover that overnight, you turned into a cat. This was the writing prompt given to the participants for the recent, and very first, Taradiddle Youth Writing Contest. The young writers submitted amazing stories, depicting tales from the perspective of the Great Cat of Wisdom from making friends with other animals and completing farm chores to tales of spells and magic.
