Writing Competitions - Published Writers

The work of three students has been selected for publication following poetry entries into the Young Writer’s Busta Rhyme competition.

The work of three students has been selected for publication following poetry entries into the Young Writer’s Busta Rhyme competition. ‘ Young Writers’ aims to encourage young people to engage in creative writing and Miss Mulligan ran after school workshops to enable 6th Former Renee Quartery-Peluoa, Stanhope student James Harvey and Hales student Ellen McDermott to make the most of their creativity. They were asked to write a poem regarding an issue they felt was important. James said “ It was a great competition as I am passionate about creative writing so it was perfect for me”. The competition winners are expected to be announced some time during the summer term so we are watching out for a positive outcome but, even if prizes aren’t awarded, each student is a winner in our eyes.
