Just before summer, several of our pupils were entered into a young writers’ competition. Gaby Heskett’s Year 10 has been shortlisted from 18,000 short stories/poems across England. Her mini saga (poem), ‘A Visitor to the World’, was so beautiful and raw it comes as no surprise that she wowed the judges. Below is the official letter and she also received a certificate. Her work will be published in an anthology, ‘Welcome to Wonderland – Tales from The North West’, and I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for her to be in the overall top five. Fantastic result Gaby!
