We are published authors

Press Packers Louisa and Amy

Press Packers Louisa and Amy were selected as winners of the Evans Schools Short Story Competition.

They even had their work published on World Book Day in the book 'Lord of the Ring Doughnuts and other stories and poems'.

Here's their story.

"When it was announced in assembly at the end of last term that our stories had been chosen we didn't really believe it until we went up to shake Mrs Stanley's and Mrs Ryninks' hands (our teachers).

Another short story

Writing a short story is really fun.

You just need to make sure you use interesting characters. We both really like reading which helps a lot if you want to write and make up stories.

We are going to write another short story at the weekend. Mummy and Daddy are going to give us the first line.

Can't believe

Our favourite authors are Michael Morpurgo, Roald Dahl, Julia Jarman who visited the school for World Book Day this year and Chris d'Lacey who visited the school on World Book Day last year.

We still can't believe we are published authors!"
