Winchester poetry competition

Several St Swithun’s girls entered a combined poetry and art competition run by the ‘City of Winchester Trust’. As a result ten girls have had their work selected to be included in a youth anthology of work by students from local schools. Congratulations to Bryony Dennison, Isabella  Symes, Jaisila Patel, Lydia Rosen, Roshy Afshar, Josephine Smailes , Lucy Kennett (all L5), Matilda Meynell, Emily Hardman and Amelia Brown (all U4).

Isabella Symes, Jaisila Patel, Lydia Rosen and Bryony Dennison attended the University Of Winchester to be presented with their anthologies in front of an assembled group which included the mayor of Winchester Cllr Ernie Jeffs.  Isabella Symes read her poem in front of the audience. Lucy Kennett’s poem entitled Venta Belgarum can be read here.

The anthology Old City Young Views is on sale in Winchester bookshops – priced £10.
