2018 Honorary Mentions

Judging for Undiscovered Voices is a difficult process that often involves long passionate debates about who to include in the final anthology. The judges endeavour to create an anthology that showcases a wide variety of voices and genres. Check out Undiscovered Voices’ 2018 finalists here or download the complete anthology here.
