News from the library
Looking for a Christmas holiday project? Why not write a story… Last year, many of the children at St Stephen’s entered the Daunt’s Short Story Competition. Indeed we even had some winners from our school over the past few years. What an honour to have three published authors in our own school.
This year, I would like to encourage any other keen writers from St Stephens to enter, as it is a wonderful opportunity to write a story for pleasure and potentially see it in print!
The competition is open to all children aged four to fifteen. The story must be all your child’s own work and must be between 300 and 1500 words.
How do I submit?
You should email your story as an attachmen to email@example.com by Friday 20th February. Please put your child’s name, age and class as the email title and on the story attached. Eg: Sally – class Y4 Eliot (Age 9) Please take sure that the stories are typed, double-spaced and single
sided. We will then forward all St Stephen’s entries to Daunt bookshop by the closing date. A copy of the children’s stories will be kept in a special folder in the Library for all to read.
Results will be announced in April 2020 and winning stories will be published in during Summer term.
