One Childhood, One Chance

Writing Competition - Grand finale - Updated Tuesday please read!


The finale of our lock down writing competition and we have a treat for you today! Today's poem is called the 'Spider' and Martyn will explore his inspiration for the poem, the poem and of course, some illustration work.  A competition video will be arriving on your blogs shortly, not only announcing the competition, but also with some rather funny out-takes.

Martyns poems have really inspired me to get into those darker places, observe the fauna which are hiding there, going about their daily business, and write about them. I really hope that it has inspired you to do the same! Enjoy...

Here's the link:

Please open and read the writing challenge poster attached below.


Mr McAuley and Martyn Harvey have really enjoyed making these videos for the writing competition, we really hope that you have enjoyed watching them. In this final video, Martyn and I are announcing the competition and what we are looking for in a winning poem. Remember, "a master has failed more times than an amateur has tried", so get exploring, write some poetry, do some drawings and then maybe find another creature and go through the same process again. We would love for you to enjoy this writing and illustrating process because we think that will shine through in your poems.

A poster will appear on your blogs to confirm the writing competition and where to send your entries. 

Finally, remember to go back and 'like' your favourite two videos, you can even leave a positive message under the it along with your name so we know who has enjoyed that video and why.

Good luck, I can't wait to start reading your entries.

Mr McAuley
