Posted on: 19th Nov

Year 8 student Christian F has been crowned the winner of the Quentin Blake Short Story competition in the 12-15 age category.  The competition, which was run by The Base in Greenham Business Park, encouraged young people to get creative and to write a story on any subject of their choosing, inspired by the works of Quentin Blake. The competition was run alongside an exhibition at The Base showcasing the illustrations and writings of Blake and his partnership with author John Yeoman.

You can listen to Christian’s fantastic story which is called ‘A Flight gone wrong’ via the link below. The story is read by local author and poet Toni Kent, who was also part of the judging panel.

The story will be sent to award winning author and illustrator Quentin Blake and published in the Newbury Weekly News. Christian also wins tickets to the exhibition. Well done Christian.
