Unah Cader winner of the 2015 Rosalind Laker Award for Creative Writing

The 2015 winner of this award is a particularly charismatic student at The University of Reading. Unah has written a piece which is very modern and current. It is a modern take on traditional children’s stories and is both unexpected and, perhaps, for most readers of this website, a little challenging. Would Rosalind Laker have enjoyed them? We think so. Although a lover of all things historical, Rosalind kept very much up to date with everything that was happening in the Literary World. Unah is as innovative as her appearance and we wish her well for the future.

In presenting the prize Rosalind’s son, Paul Ovstedal, said that the prize continued Rosalind’s enthusiasm for helping new writers.
