What the winners said...
"He was very proud of himself and very surprised he won, it was amazing for him - best birthday present as the trophy in the post coincided with his birthday! He said he liked making up the story and now he has a pet caterpillar he will do a story about her. I really love it when children use their imagination and put story on paper for others to share."
Parent of Maximilien Baker (4) (4-year-old category winner)
"I was really excited when I found out I had won the competition and got my trophy. I love seeing my writing in the book and it was lots of fun to enter!"
Iris Bosworth (7) (5-7 year-olds category winner)
"This was the first writing competition I have ever entered. When I tore open the envelope, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was happy enough to be chosen for the book, let alone win! Taking part has given me more confidence in my writing and encouraged me to believe I can achieve my dream of becoming an author."
Eve McDonald (10) (8-11 year-olds category winner)
"Young Writers’ Annual Showcase was truly the perfect outlet for my creativity. It was a great opportunity for me to write a short essay on ‘Should Fairytales be Changed?’ - a topic I had a keen interest in and greatly enjoyed exploring and debating. I feel inspired to continue creative writing as a hobby."
