With the subject being ‘New Beginnings’, there was a diverse range of engaging responses that took multiple forms, from short stories to poems.

Congratulations to the winner of first place, Leah Morgan, for her well-expressed prose in which she challenges the reader to think about their role in society. The judges felt this was an accurate piece of thought-provoking writing. The two runners up also produced thoughtful pieces. Miriam Christie-Mann submitted a poem which encourages the reader to engage with a theme of hope during the transition from school to college, through an interesting use of language patterns.

John Dior, the additional runner-up, produced a creative poem entitled ‘Hair’, which deals with ideas about identity and the importance of accepting your roots.   The competition was a great success which showcased some fantastic talent.
