This year’s short story competition (sponsored by the school’s library magazine The Blurb) is open to all pupils from S1 to S6, but you’ll have to be quick – the deadline is Monday 28th March.
All you have to do is write a short story where a book plays an important part in the plot.
If you are stuck for a way to start your story why not choose ONE of the following:
I’ve always hated going to the library but that day…
Your story should be around 500 words long. There will be a prize for the winner and runner-up of each age group S1-2, S3-4, and S5-6. The overall winning essay will be published in the next edition of The Blurb.
Hand in your completed story to your English teacher or to Mrs Turner in the library.
