Six aspiring writers, now in Year 8 and 9, entered the Young Writers Spine Chillers Competition in Spring 2016 as part of Creative Writing Club. Their task was to write a chilling ‘mini-saga’ in 100 words or less.
Joelle Esquejo, Jenny Brooks, Jess Beales, Jess Wallace, Jenny Hurnell and Kate Edwardson are all competition finalists and their stories have been published in the Young Writers Spine Chillers – County Durham & Tyne and Wear Anthology. Well done girls!
There is a copy of the book in the LRC should you want to read these scary stories in print.
