Alana Washington has won the Finney the Fox competition and will have her story, about our cheeky mascot Finney, turned into a picture book. The picture book will be published by UCLan Publishing, date to be confirmed.
The competition gave writers a chance to come up with a creative story about Finney and showcase their talent. Out of over 60 submissions, a shortlist of 7 was decided on by the ‘Fox Den’ and the winner was chosen.
Winner, Alana Washington, had this to say: “I’m over the moon to be the winner of the Finney the Fox picture book competition! I’m in a writing group and we call ourselves ‘Fox Club’. When my friend saw the competition on Twitter, she sent it around our group with the message, “It’s a sign. This one’s for us!” Happily, she was right! Thank you UCLan Publishing.”
