First Story LaunchPosted on: 09/10/2018
Eighth Anthology of Creative Writing Published by Willowfield Students.
Parents, staff and students all gathered on the evening of Thursday 4th October to celebrate the launch of ‘Raw’, Willowfield’s eighth professionally published creative writing anthology.
Last academic year, a talented group of Year 10 students (now Year 11) were members of the First Story programme. This involved taking part in creative writing workshops led by our Writer in Residence, Anthony Cartwright.
The evening was a fantastic success and we were treated to brilliant readings of creative writing. The audience were also wowed by two musical interludes. The first was provided by the very talented singing of Shakira and Nihitha – Nihitha also played the keyboard. The second interlude was a musical ensemble of violin playing by Sara and Sedef, accompanied by Maud, who played the keyboard.
Many were keen to purchase copies of the entertaining anthology on the night, so a big well done to our professional authors!
Copies of ‘Raw’ can be purchased from Ms. Joseph for £5.
