Really proud that Compostgirl's writing talents have been recognised and she is one of the winners of the All Write 2013 writing competition. She will have her story illustrated and published in an Anthology and get a certificate signed by Poet Laurate, Carol Ann Duffy. She is also in contention for the overall best story award.
All Write 2013 is organised by Manchester Metropolitan University's Creative Learning Network
The Manchester Children's Book Festival invites young writers to send in their creative writing for this free-to-enter competition. There is no set theme and pupils are encouraged to write in any genre. If you are a secondary school running a transition project with feeder primaries, let us know – we welcome group entries and are happy to publish work produced by other projects. The best entries will be illustrated and published in All Write 2013 and copies of the anthology will be presented to winning pupils.
We are all so excited! Watch this space :)
