Kings launches writing competition
Wednesday 18 September 2019
Writing competition Sept 19
The literacy competition was launched with a visit from writer, film maker and journalist, James Brabazon this week.
Students and staff of Kings College have had the wonderful experience of meeting writer, film maker and journalist, James Brabazon this week. James is working alongside Miss Mulligan, Head of English, this year to bring students of the school a fantastic writing competition, a competition exclusively open to our students at Kings.

Students of all ages are invited to engage their creative brains and write a story about ‘A Complicated Friendship’, with smaller prizes including vouchers and book donations of various amounts. The winning student and first runner up will be invited to London, where they will engage in some creative writing activities with James before meeting a literary agent at Curtis Brown, who will review and offer advice on their work.

Competition details are as follows:

Title: ‘A Complicated Friendship’
Word Count: Between 800 and 2000 words
Deadline for submission: 6th November

James and his agent will be judging the shortlisted entries together, and are looking to be moved by whatever students choose to write, so creativity and imagination are key. All students are encouraged to enter, and teachers will be on hand over the coming weeks to help with the writing process, as well as any spelling or grammatical worries! If any parents or guardians are interested in being involved, please let Miss Mulligan know - we will always welcome enthusiasm!
