Creative writing success
10 Dec 2015
Two Perse students’ pieces of creative writing have been selected to be showcased on the University of Warwick’s ‘IGGY’ website.
This competition gave teachers from around the world the opportunity to share their students’ best work across their network of global educators. Students were encouraged to write anything from a close reading analysis, a poem or even a short story.
Wafia Zia in the Lower Sixth wrote a piece entitled ‘Beauty is Terror’ and Kirill Nezhentsev in Year 9 submitted an essay exploring the similarities and differences between The Pearl and Of Mice and Men. These essays will be published on the IGGY website in the coming weeks as examples of some of the best creative writing in the IGGY network, and Wafia and Kirill also received certificates of achievement and an Amazon voucher.
