The winners of our Young Writers Competition have been announced and we’re thrilled with the creative talent and hard work of all of our finalists.
Now in its tenth year, 2019’s theme was ‘wild’ and our finalists did not disappoint. From a ‘wild’ 90-year-old grandmother who believes she can compete in the Olympics to an uptight school librarian who in one author’s ‘wild’ imagination becomes a Russian agent, physicist and intrepid explorer, all of our finalists certainly put their own spin on the theme.
We spoke to our youngest winner Joshua Mether, Year 2 student at St Cecilia’s Catholic Primary School about his story Joshy and Livvy’s Wild Adventure.
I was so surprised I won but it was really exciting!
Livvy and I play a lot together and are always going on adventures. I thought it would be a good idea for my story.
We will probably go underwater. We will fight a shark and Livvy will talk to the angel fish.
I will be able to swim really fast!
I love writing stories and seeing my writing all nice and neat. I also like using my ideas and turning them into stories.
You can see the full list of our finalists and read their stories on the Library’s website.
