Pupils' Prose Published

young writers

In the spring term, many of Blue Coat's aspirational authors submitted their entries to a nationwide short-story competition.These 100-word spooky sagas both thrilled and terrified in equal measure!

Despite the testing word limit, the children crafted their mini sagas skillfully, ensuring that they thought carefully about the purpose of their writing as well as their audience. 

Every word and phrase was carefully chosen; some children did 3 or 4 drafts before considering their editing to be complete.

Following a tense period of waiting, almost all of the entries submitted were successful and we now have the finished books in our hands. 

All of the children can be very proud of being pubished. No doubt there will be more exciting opportunities to write in the future!
