Young Writers ran their creative writing competition ‘Grim Tales’ in the 2014/2015 academic year. Schools across the UK were invited to submit their students' work for the opportunity to be published and win prizes. Young Writers received in excess of 27,000 mini sagas from over 800 schools! Young Writers' Editorial team chose the best writer from each book and awarded them with a £10 Love2Shop voucher upon publication. Once the series was published, the tough decision of who the best three schools were had to be made.
Young Writers would like to thank everyone who took part and are delighted to announce their school winners as…
