Girls' Creative Capers Published
Wednesday, 04 July 2012
Many Bolton School Girls' Division Pupils have had their work published in an anthology of short stories, after coming second in a 'Young Writers' competition for Greater Manchester and Lancashire.
The competition was entitled Mini Sagas - Creative Capers (the title of the book), and girls from Years 7 to 9 each wrote a 'Mini Saga' to enter. The short stories were limited to just 50 words meaning the girls had quite a challenge on their hands.
The school received £500 in prize money which the English department intend to use to pay for professional writers to visit the school and run workshops with the students.
