Spine-Chillers - Young Writers

Posted on 28th January, 2016

Bolton St Catherine’s Academy Young Spine Chillers


Many of our students from Years 7, 8 and 9 entered the Spine Chillers Competition in December 2015. Miss George and Miss Lang spent many hours encouraging and coaxing the boys and girls  giving them the confidence to write in a ‘spine chiiling’ manner. A selection of their work is to be published in the Young Writers Spine Chillers – Northern Terrors Anthology on 30th April.

Miss Barlow, Head of School for English said: ‘The students are creative and dedicated writers showing great talent at an early age. This will help them achieve success in the future and we are looking forward to seeing some become influential writers in the future. I am really encouraged at the number of young people wanting to show their talents’.
