First Story Anthology!
The year 9 students who have been working with First Story have reached the stage where all their work is ready to be sent to the printers for the Anthology.
Pictured here is the brainstorming session with the playwright Amanda Whittington, who has been our writer in residence this year. Amanda worked with the students to come up with the title for the Anthology, which is ‘Break The Silence, Free Your Voice’. They also agreed a style for the front cover.
The next time they see their work it will be inside the covers of the Anthology, which will be launched in July, and all these hardworking students will be able to say they are published authors.
Their work covers many subjects, poems for peace, ghost and horror stories, angry waitresses and abandoned strangers, along with a short biography from each contributor. It is essential Summer reading.
