Budding Writers


Budding WritersStudents from Castell Alun entered the Young Writers national competition – ‘A Twist in the Tale’ and have achieved success by having their stories published. Brianna, Caitlyn, Hannah and Shannon had their stories selected from the thousands of entries which the competition received.

Entrants were required to re-write a traditional fairy tale and add a modern twist in no more than 100 words.

Miss Samantha Parker: “The students’ re-imagined fairytales were mysterious, exciting and extremely well written. They let their imaginations run wild and the results were fantastic! It was amazing to see where their 500 words took them”.

Brianna added, “The competition proved to each of us that fiction doesn’t have to be long and boring, it can be short, snappy and sparkling with inspiration. We really got into it and actually quite surprised ourselves with what we achieved.”
