Budding Young Authors

Published Wednesday 29th of April 2015 04:15:08 PM

Budding authors as young as seven have had their stories published in a book that can now be bought from an educational website.

The thirteen Year 3 children from St Margaret�s Preparatory School, Calne, were asked to write a story which had a beginning, a middle and an end in no more than 100 words.
Head of English Laura Gordon said: �I was very impressed with the results. It is not easy to write a complete story in so few words. They all did well and came up with some excellent end products.�

She sent the entries off to the Young Writers website and was delighted when all thirteen were accepted for a book.
Mrs Gordon said: �Every story had to start with �Once upon a time� but after that they all came up with original ideas that included aliens, animals and sport. The book has an ISBN number and can now be bought by parents.�

Pupils who attend the school�s creative writing club are also to have poems published by the same company, which has been running for 20 years to encourage youngsters to write.

Young Writers said: �Work is selected for publication based on perception, imagination, expression, creativity and use of language. The editors will reject work that doesn't meet expectations.�
