Following a record number of entries, the finalists for Arts Richmond's Young Writers Festival have been chosen.
The festival was open to all young people who either live or attend school or clubs in the borough of Richmond upon Thames. It was a chance to demonstrate writing skills of any form: stories, descriptive writing, poems, playlets and lyrics for songs.
A vast number of entries were received from all age groups across the borough. A total of 901 were sifted and a final 50 for each of the age groups were sent to a panel of judges.
You can celebrate the finalists on Sunday 26 March from 2 to 4pm at The Exchange, 75 London Road, Twickenham, TW1 1BE. You will be able to see the writer’s work come to life and enjoy performances from a group of local actors.
