'War and Peace' Creative Writing Competition: Celebration Evening

This 2018 competition was organised to celebrate the work of creative writers of all ages.The theme of 'conflict' was conceived to commemorate the anniversary of the Great War, one hundred years after the guns fell silent.

We were delighted to receive 120 entries from ages eight to adult, that ranged from war diaries to poetry, short stories to graphic novels. Over fifty entries were included in the shortlist that were then passed to our judging panel for the difficult task of of selecting winners in each age groups.

Many of those shortlisted now appear in print in our 'War & Peace Anthology', launched last night. Category winners, runner-ups and those highly commended were invited to the College to read extracts from their work at this celebration evening. It was a fitting way to commemorate the effort that went in to the wonderful array of submissions received.

We look forward to further creative endeavors from such talented writers - young and old - in the future.
