Creative writing competition

October saw the start of a new creative writing competition at Cavendish School of English. For the whole month students had the opportunity to submit pieces to the competition and collectively the standard of work entered was fabulous. Pieces ranged from short stories, poems, invitations, recipes and even new product designs. This month the competition was judged by one of our own teachers Simon Boxall who just so happens to be an author too. Simon’s novel “Margin of Evil” was published in 2012 and is now available in paperback.
Simon took his time in reading all of the entries and stated that “the work was of excellent quality.” He particularly liked some of the more poetic pieces which were written by students from AWO Hessen Sued – Frankfurt. However, there had to be a winner and this month first place goes to the “Mosquito Belles,” four lovely ladies from Schorndorf, Max –Plank Gymnasium. The girls designed a new play cart for children. When we asked why Simon had chosen their entry, his answer was quite simple, “It’s so imaginative, I love the idea of a coffin for children to drive around in.”
Below is the winning entry, you may well agree it is imaginative if not a somewhat macabre!
Congratulations girls and thanks to everyone who took part. Next month’s theme is Bonfires and Fireworks. The entries shall be judged our Senior Teacher, Mr Wayne Thomas. Good luck everyone.
