A group of talented student creative writers have recently had their work published as part of the ‘Stranger Sagas’ competition organised by Young Writers.
As part of the creative process, students were encouraged through their curriculum Drama lessons to explore the themes, issues and opening sentences provided by the competition. Workshops were carried out, followed by a written response to their experiences, abiding by the rules of the competition to create their submitted pieces. A record number of students were entered into the competition, with over two hundred students receiving commendation for their work. Students who were successful in their entries were able to see their stories published in a physical copy, available for them to keep.
