BIG NEWS – Megaphone participants announced!

I’m delighted to say that, together with the editors, I’ve made the selection of participants for Megaphone. We had over sixty applications, from all over England, and I was delighted with the standard. Ten were shortlisted, and the editors helped select the final five. They are… (in no particular order!)

Huge congratulations to all five, I’m very excited to be working with you!

And to all who applied – thank you so much. We only had five places to give, but I was so pleased with the standard of the applications that came in. Keep writing, and I hope that if Megaphone runs again you will consider re-applying.
