    FORWARD: e-Magazine Young Critics Competition

    We are delighted - to have TWO winners of a national competition from one school is a triumph.

     

     

    Sixth Form English Literature students were encouraged by our English Department to enter the Forward/e-magazine Young Critics Competition run by the EMC.

     

    Allegra and Tom, Y13 have been highly commended in the 16-19 Critical Writing category.

    The competition was judged by the e-magazine editors and the poet Sarah Howe (winner of the TS Eliot Prize for Poetry 2015 for Loop of Jade).

     

    They were invited to the Forward Prize award ceremony on Thursday 21 September in the Royal Festival Hall and their entries will be published in the e-magazine.

     

    They had to choose one poem or extract from a longer poem selected by EMC from the short-listed poets and write a critical appreciation of it.

    We are delighted - to have TWO winners of a national competition from one school is a triumph.

     

    NEXT COMPETITION

    For those studying Chaucer the next competition will be The Canterbury Tales Writing Competition.  We will keep you posted!
