Coleraine College young authors have the ‘write’ stuff

Students from Coleraine College enjoyed recent success when they had their own mini-sagas published by Young Writers, a platform that has been running national creative writing competitions in schools since 1991.

Project Co-ordinator, Miss Victoria Mercer explained: “Students in Years 8, 9 and 10 took part in the competition during the remote learning period in January 2021, which asked for a mini-saga to be written in 100 words or less relating to the crime and mystery genre.

“This was an excellent opportunity for students to practice their writing skills as well as giving them a creative outlet during online learning.

“From car chases to murder mysteries, the entries were diverse, engaging and innovative and act as a brilliant showcase of the talent and creative minds here at Coleraine College.

“Students are delighted at having their stories chosen for publication and we are very proud of them.”

The Young Writers’ Unsolved anthology is due to be published later this month.
