How it all went down...
Hi everyone and welcome to the 14th annual PreQuills, celebrating the best of Writing.com from 2020!

Today we are announcing the finalists in 18 categories and we'll be announcing the winners of 19 genre categories! *Bigsmile*

The final Quill ceremony will be next Saturday, 22 May at 5pm WDC time and we’ll then announce the remaining Quill Award winners. In total we'll have more than 50 Quill winners!

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.
