Sea creatures story wins creative writing prize for Eleanor
Student Eleanor Morgan was chosen as the winner of the College Library’s Creative Writing competition with her short story about Freedom.
Written through the eyes of sea creatures kept in a tank who watch a young child at play, the thought-provoking piece was a clear winner according to the judging panel.
Eleanor, who is studying A Levels in English Language & Literature, Film Studies and Fine Art, was presented with her £25 book token by Librarian Jennifer Cooper. Her story will be published in this month’s College magazine, The Writeous.
Former St Edwards School student Eleanor said: “I was surprised when I was told I had won. I’m hoping to study Creative Writing at university when I leave College, so I was really pleased.”
Another winner was also announced this week. Student Alissa Fagan-Cobham, pictured right, received a £50 LoveToShop voucher after winning the College’s #LoveOurColleges campaign prize draw.
Alissa supported the #LoveOurColleges campaign urging the government to increase funding for colleges, by writing: “What I love about our College is that it has a protective vibe around it and the teachers are very understanding.”
