Iris Bosworth (7) (5-7 year-olds category winner)

"Young Writers’ Annual Showcase was truly the perfect outlet for my creativity. It was a great opportunity for me to write a short essay on ‘Should Fairytales be Changed?’ - a topic I had a keen interest in and greatly enjoyed exploring and debating. I feel inspired to continue creative writing as a hobby."
