PRLog - June 26, 2012 - BATH, U.K. -- Local author, Julia Green, announced the winners of this year’s King Edward’s Senior School Short Story Competition during Assembly in the Sports Hall on Tuesday 26th March.

As Course Director for the MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University, and published novelist of six novels for teenagers and six stories for younger children, Julia Green has a great deal of experience in writing for this age group and kindly agreed to help with the judging. Julia also paid a visit to a lunch time session of the Creative Writing Society to offer her advice to pupils on writing their story.

Speaking about the competition, Julia Green said: “I was very impressed reading through all the stories submitted. I can see that there is a great deal of creative literary talent amongst the pupils and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if many of you do not go on to become published authors. It was interesting to judge this competition and to find that overall it was the interpretation of dark that pupils found most affinity with, some very dark stories indeed! I hope you will all find time to practise your writing skills every day and read as much as possible; it really is the only way to improve. Thank you for inviting me to judge this competition.”
