The Creative Writing Challenge Results
'Toaster Poetry' by Agata Spasik, Braden Forest School
Judges comments: "So simple, so beautifully put together, and really quite profound."
"This made me smile. Very neatly done metaphor and such great, sparse writing."
"Superb, succinct and profound"
'Jackson and Olivia' by Charlotte Minett, Chipping Campden
Judges comments: "Impressive for someone so young to have the confidence to write simply and concisely, not falling back on long words or too much description. She captures the nature of grief and bereavement incredibly well. You could imagine reading a novel by this writer."

'The Boy' by Alex Masters, Ridgeway School
Judges comment: "Again, very assured writing, emotive and descriptive and a great sense of place and time."
