I'm a few days behind on this but the winners of the Hadiah Sastera Kumpulan Utusan (Utusan Group Literature Prize) 2005 have recently been announced. Of most interest to me are the winners for the newly-added English Novel category:
First Prize (RM6,000)
Fridge Horror (Ti Chin Han)
Second Prize (RM4,000)
The Curse (Lee Su Ann)
Third Prize (RM3,000)
Nine Lives (Teoh Choon Ean)
The article doesn't mention if the winners got a publishing contract though. Why do all the stories sound like they're in the horror genre? Hmm...
Anyways, congratulations to the winners!
She may not have had the scoop, but Sharon gets the human interest angle :)
