Busta Rhyme (YoungWriters)
A number of year 7 to 10 students recently entered a poetry competition run by YoungWriters.co.uk.
YoungWriters have received over 12000 entries nationally and forty-four of our students have been selected for publication on 31st March 2017. Each of the students, who entered, had the chance of winning a £1000 prize for themselves and an overall prize of £1000 for their school.
These winners have yet to be published.
Editors chose the poems to publish by taking a broad view on what makes a good poem: perception, imagination and creativity, as well as expression, originality and effective use of language.
This competition has continued to fuel our young writers’ passion for poetry and has helped to keep students motivated with their writing.
The English department at Ellesmere Port Catholic High school are very proud of our students’ efforts.
