Whoopeeeee!! Sarah McKenna (age 13), student of my creative writing classes in Skerries, has won The Cúirt New Writing prize for Youth! Well done Sarah!!!! Sniff! Sniff! I’m so proud.
Below is a picture of Sarah, when she came first in the literary competition for Youth with Listowel Writers’ Week last year. This girl is amazing! (as are my other students Sadhbh and Hannah who were shortlisted for The Cúirt New Writing Award along with Sarah).
Sarah will be reading aloud her chilling story entitled, The Girl, at The Cúirt Writing Festival in Galway this April!
