Creative Writing Competition Ahead of Author Visit

Published on Wednesday 04th October 2017

Students in years 7 and 8 still have time to enter an original writing competition inspired by an author who is visiting TCA next week.

 Andy Briggs, who is also a screenwriter and graphic novelist, will be in school on Thursday 12th October to talk about his new series of books, The Inventory. He will be talking to students about how he became a writer, illustrated with photos from his film work in Hollywood.

Students have the chance to win a signed copy of one of Andy’s books by writing a story or poem with the title Gadget! It can be any length or style, but must be an original work. The winner will be judged on creativity, originality and reader engagement, with the closing date October 6th. Visit the library for more details.

Parents who would like to purchase a book for their child can do so before October 6th via Parentpay (select ‘Andy Briggs – signed book’). Each book is £5.
