The Creative Writing Prize 2019 Winner announced!

The Creative Writing Prize 2019 Winner announced!

The winning Story by 9-year-old Fern Brindle is to be published in We are the Beaker Girls by Jacqueline Wilson in June 2020.

9-year-old Fern Brindle from Dronfield in Derbyshire has won this year’s prize. For this year’s challenge, entrants were asked to write a short story on any subject between 750-1000 words. 

Fern’s story, Mum’s New Hobby, is a highly original and very funny story. Fern says she was inspired to write it because “my Granddad said that I didn’t have a sense of humour, (I don’t find his jokes funny). Then my Mum knitted a hat that didn’t turn out right, it was big enough to fit a giant and I just started imagining what funny things might happen with a ginormous hat!”
