Students get their creative juices flowing

by Mrs McHugh, English Dept

Students have been finely honing their creative skills in preparation for a writing competition organised by the Literary and Philosophical Society in Newcastle. In November, Year 7 and Year 10 students were treated to workshops in school led by Jessica Wortley, who is currently working on a PhD in Creative Writing.  Year 12 students were lucky enough to visit the Lit and Phil Library for their workshop where they used real life stories of courage to inspire fictional writing.  St Thomas More had one winner in the poetry category and a runner up in the fiction category this year so fingers crossed for similar success next year!
