No one could accuse the Creative Writing Club of being idle. They recently entered their work for the Radio 2 500 Words competition, and published the first edition of their magazine ‘Elemeno’. Elemeno is a short zine, which features work created and edited wholly by the students. It is free to download (Click Here) and hardcopies are available in the library.
Creative Writing Club are now working towards the Foyle Young Poets competition. Anyone aged from 11-17 can enter, and the closing date is 31st July.
The Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award is the biggest award for writers aged 11-17. It welcomes poems on any theme and entry is completely FREE.
Since it began, the Award has kick-started the career of some of today’s most exciting new voices. Students should see Mr Luke or Amy Lloyd for more details.
We are still looking for 500-word stories for the next edition of Elemeno, so please post any work you would like to be considered into Amy Lloyd’s pigeon hole. We are also working on a super-long poem, called ‘I Remember’ – students who would like to submit a line, should come into the library.
The Creative Writing Club is open to anyone, we meet on Tuesdays and Fridays during period six.
Anyone who enjoys writing of any kind can come and join us for some encouragement and a chance to share each others’ ideas.
