Second-year A-Level student, Stephanie Flynn, recently came third place in the Wales Young Poets Award. Her poem, Mary Janes, has been published in the anthology alongside other shortlisted poems. A copy of the anthology is available in the Bexhill College Library for staff and students to read.
Stephanie’s personal tutor comments: “Her [Stephanie’s] positive engagement with extracurricular activities is evidenced through the publication of her emotive and mature poem. Stephanie’s talent and interest in creative writing is displayed through her progression to university this September, to study English and Sociology.”
The Wales Young Poets Award is in its first year, with entries in Welsh aged 14-17, English 10-13 and English 14-17. Further information can be found here: https://poetrywales.co.uk/announcing-wales-young-poets-award-2020-winners-and-shortlist/
