How it all went down...
Hi everyone and welcome to the 13th annual PreQuills, celebrating the best of Writing.com from 2019!

Today we are announcing the finalists in 16 categories and we'll be announcing the winners of 17 genre categories! *Bigsmile*

The final Quill ceremony will be next Saturday, 6 June at 4pm WDC time and we’ll then announce the remaining Quill Award winners. In total we'll have more than 60 Quill winners, which is a new record!

If you miss any of the results, they'll be posted in the newsfeed and emailed to all nominees who are part of "2020 Quill nominees.

Just a reminder that you can post messages here and also listen to/watch the live chat.

Right, has everyone been to the bathroom? *Laugh*

I'll announce the 16 lots of finalists first, and then we’ll do our 17 genre winners and HMs. After that, Kittiara and I also have a big announcement to make.

Quill rules state that any category that receives more than 20 nominations will have 5-10 of the nominated pieces selected as finalists. These finalists are based on the results of the judging, or of the voting YOU did if it's a genre category.
