On April 8th, SWC held our annual student writing contest at Edward Milne Community School. Writing “live” over a period of roughly two hours and using a list of prompts for inspiration, the students wrote stories or poems. The judges were several members of Sooke Writers’ Collective. Our thanks to Mrs. Zanardo for her continued support of the contest and her students!
poetry prize: Morganne Orchard for “April”
junior 1st place: Kara Lebold for “Revenge Is Not Always Sweet”
junior 2nd place: Jessica Thompson for “Fading Thoughts”
senior 1st place: Makayla Scharf for “Curiosity Killed the Cat”
