Global Campus Creative Writing Winners 2017

6,500 students participated in the Nord Anglia Education (NAE) Creative Writing Competition 2017. The NAE Global Campus received entries from all over the world, as 42 schools from our international network took part. That alone is a magnificent feat and a true testament to the power of global learning!

  • All Three NAE BISHCMC Creative Writing Winners

This year, each age group had to create stories under different themes:

  • Under 8 - Family

  • Age 11-14 - Fan-Fiction

  • Age 14-18 - Free choice of topic

Participants were given a maximum word count of just 500 words to tell their story.

Fan-fiction is a style of writing that is proving very popular as it involves taking something like a book, a TV show, or a film that you already enjoy and making more of it! It is a great way to develop an interest in writing because a lot of the initial work, like characters and setting has been done for you, and you just need to make it your own. Find tips on how to get started with fan-fiction here.

At British International School, HCMC, we are extremely proud to announce that we have 3 students whose stories were shortlisted and their entries will be published in this year’s Creative Writing and Visual Arts anthology. Congratulations to Katie, Raghav, and Angelina for being recognised for their hard work and creativity.

Raghav Dwivedi, a Year 6 student at An Phu Primary, was also deservedly named Junior Writer of the Year for his entire age group.

Below, you can hear audio clips of our three wonderful authors reading their stories.

Raghav Dwivedi (Age 8-11)

Young Samurai - The Way of the Oarsman

What inspired you to take part in this competition?

“I enjoy writing and i was inspired to take part in this competition by the young samurai series that I based my Nord Anglia entry upon.”

Do you have any ambitious plans to be a professional writer when you grow up?

“I am fascinated by literature so I wouldn’t mind being a novelist yet I am also interested in politics so i could incorporate both my hobbies and be a journalist or political strategist!”

Katie Nguyen (Under 8)

A Bird Family - Katie Nguyen

What do you love about writing?

“When I write people can read it and tell everyone in the world. If i were to write about endangered animals people would know that they shouldn’t do this and they shouldn’t do that.”

What do you want to be when you grow up?

“A writer or a doctor.”
