May 10, 2011 - PRLog -- Novelist Naomi Rich, judge of this year's King Edward’s Short Story Competition, visited King Edward's School on Tuesday 10th May to run a literary workshop for Year 7.
Naomi proved to be a hugely entertaining speaker, holding pupils from Year 7 spellbound as she described the development of her writing career, her approach to writing and where the inspiration for her stories come from. Her presentation also included plenty of tips about writing for young readers which pupils can use in developing their own writing.

During her visit Naomi also announced the winners of this year’s King Edward’s School Short Story Competition as well as signing copies of her debut novel Alis, which was shortlisted for the Waterstones WOW factor competition.
