Dickens novel inspires youngsters at Huish competition

Somerset County Gazette: Dickens novel inspires youngsters at Huish competition Dickens novel inspires youngsters at Huish competition

GREAT Expectations, one of the Charles Dickens novels, was the inspiration for the annual Brunner Creative Writing competition hosted by Richard Huish College.

Once again, the prize winners’ pieces, selected from a quality array of entries, lived up to the high standards now expected.

This is the fifteenth year that partner schools have been involved and there was an impressive standard of work from schools including Bishop Fox’s, The Castle, Court Fields, Heathfield, Kingsmead and The Taunton Academy.

The Brunner Cup went to Richard Huish College student Zoe Backhouse, whose Great Expectations was one of the best entries yet.

The partner school’s award went to Sam Dunnett (The Castle) for the second year in a row for his original and impressively crafted take on ‘Hard Times.’

The Taunton Academy’s Emily Beauchamp won the Lucas Cup for Artistic Writing.

It would be great to read the rest of "MR BLOBBY"S ADVENTURES IN WESTERN TOYLAND" by Edwin Blyter. Part One was in the online Bridgwater Mercury some time back, we never got any more. This was supposedly based on the real-life misdeeds of a psychotic retard Somerset Levels criminal. From what we gather, the local newspapers may soon be printing the non-fiction version of this story, in all its horrifying, vicious, sick detail.
