This week, certificates were awarded to the winners of the Thirds’ Historical Fiction Competition: Lulu, Holly and Lily. Their entries have been submitted to the National Historical Association Competition to compete against the best historically accurate creative writers in the country. Lulu’s story on 9/11 was fantastic and moving with a message of hope, whilst Holly’s story on Victorian grave robbers introduced the wonderful, though not likeable character of Charles, an unscrupulous entrepreneur. Finally Lily’s beautifully descriptive yet harrowing story on witches in Salem was outstanding. You can see the winning entries here. Well done to the runners up: Emma, Deyuan, Emily, Amarah and Ellie who also wrote engaging, creative and historically accurate stories.
