Broomsticks are so middle-ages

Witch rescueI probably shouldn’t have got my hopes up too high in regards to the SCWBI Undiscovered Voices competition, but of all my work, I thought that I’d at least be in with a shot with this. My own fault for being too optimistic, really. I’ll post it here though, and I’ve had positive feedback from elsewhere – just not from agents or publishers!

The theme of the piece was the title “Hansel and Gretel and the Great Witch Rescue”.

One criticism I’ve had in subsequent reviews was that it was too scary, and I’d imagine that their idea for the target audience for the title was lower than the MG audience I’d intended.
