It’s been worth the wait – students who submitted lyric poems to the Young Writers’ national BustaRhymes competition before Christmas have finally received a copy of their poem in print!
The collection of poems from across the West Midlands, including several contributions from Grace Academy Coventry, is the third Young Writers’ publication we have featured in, after the release of Spine-Chillers and The Poetry Trials last year. Copies of the anthologies can be found in any local bookstore.
Teacher of English, Miss Lily Woods, also commented: ‘it’s heart-warming how creative and imaginative the students are, and this competition has given them the opportunity to express their feelings and opinions on subjects which affect their lives.’
Students have yet to receive news on the latest short story competition to be run in the English Department, Welcome to Wonderland, but based on our track record, we have high hopes for success!
