Category winners Jacob Evans and Beth Shaw answered questions about why they write, how they get their inspiration, and read extracts from their stories. Beth said, ‘I’ve never shared my writing with anyone other than my mum, it was really scary but great to get positive feedback.’
Jacob Evans, who also won his category in the 2013 competition said, ‘I really enjoy writing for fun, and this has been a great experience, I’ll definitely keep writing.’
The contest, open to students from Mansfield schools and Vision West Nottinghamshire College, saw young writers create a short fiction based story of 500 words or less.
The competition was created in partnership with Mansfield 2020, after board member Kath Jephson put the idea forward. Kath said, ‘The stories have just been fantastic and I’ve been really impressed. Hopefully this is something we can grow going forward and working with the Mansfield Learning Partnership we can find new ways to encourage local creative talent.’
Berni Dickinson, Director of the Mansfield Learning Partnership, said, ‘These youngsters are really inspiring, and it’s great to see young people excited about writing. Our winners have all been given the opportunity to work with the University of Nottingham to build their skills even further, so it’s great we can help nurture local creative talent.
Events like these really raise the aspirations of young people and we’re looking forward to holding the WrittenByMe competition again next year.’
