This week we announced the three divisional winners of our Year 8 Micro-Fiction Competition. There were so many high-impact and creative pieces it was really hard to choose who would get the prizes but after much consideration we decided on the following:

Joshua Butler of Stephenson took the first prize in the Postcard Fiction category

The second category was Twitterature (ie- a creative piece limited to 140 characters) students were supplied with grid paper to help them keep track of the character count. Max Santhiran took this award with this rather absurd piece:

A warm and heartfelt congratulations to these students, and to all the boys who participated. There is currently a display of outstanding Postcard Fiction in the Arthur Holt Library. We will be featuring many examples of Micro-Fiction on the blog in the upcoming weeks.

So watch this space…
