English students go gothic for imaginative writing competition

Well done to all the amateur authors who submitted stories in the 2017 Rob Lawlor prize for imaginative writing.

GCSE English students entered their best piece of gothic horror writing from their GCSE English coursework. Rob Lawlor, a former tutor and local writer, who the award was named after, kindly agreed to judge the competition and award prizes.

First prize went to Jade Wallace for her brilliantly eerie story, ‘Moonlit Mirror’ – “Beware of the reflection and the roses – Thirteen steps to the devil’s door…”
Joint second prizes were awarded to Lucia Plachetkova and George Hart-Woods.

There was an award for the best Adult story who was awarded to Laura Dickinson for her intriguing tale, ‘Peter’s Body’ – “Not all ghost stories are made up. Some are warnings that should be listened to…”
Runners up from the adult classes included Diana Butcher and Khurram Zahid.

Other certificates were handed out to those that were involved with the competition.
