Lizard Lockdown story competition

Winner of the middle age group: Jack
The judges loved the fishing references and how catching a pollack is better than a gold coin!
"Imaginative winner whose enjoyment of telling a story came through to the reader. Great idea. The development of Joe’s character hooks the reader in so that the Sea Dragon seems very real."

"Joe Walker and the Sea Dragon" pdf.

2nd prize went to Zevi
Judges said, "Zevi - Excellent and once again keeps to the brief of a short story which is difficult to write. Well structured and therefore holds the reader’s attention and is well written. A good ending. Drawings in beautiful colour. Best drawings in the competition."

"Big Blue" pdf.

Third place of the middle age group: Maisie
"This story has immediate pace and verve. Highly imaginative. Winnie, the dog, is an unusual heroine and the Firebird is an exotic creation which holds the attention. Well deserved place."

"The Case of the Missing Firebird" pdf.

Lockdown Competition winner of the oldest age group: 11-16 year-olds first prize to Anna.
She was judged to be a talented young writer!
"Her story stuck to the brief of a short story, which isn't easy, without curtailing it and told a tale which was very captivating and descriptive with a very good command of language."

“An Event on The Lizard” pdf.

This won the second prize for the Lockdown story competition for the oldest age group: 11-16.
Emma - "A budding crime writer has delivered a good but somewhat gruesome short story. Belle is well drawn and gets her just deserts so it has a moral message - Do as you would be done by."
Enjoyed by all the judges.

"The Bells Ring for Murder" pdf.

"The Time that Tarni Ran Away" pdf.

"Based presumably on a true event?? the writer captures vividly the anxiety of the family when Tarni disappears. Tarni is described well and the solution to her waywardness is neat."


Harold equal 3rd place of the top age group with Percy.

"Lucky Escape" pdf.

"A more factual take with very good reportage including newsworthy photographic evidence! The fate of the little calf grabs the reader and sighs of relief were taken at the end."

'Lucky Escape' - Very mature, documentary-style writing.
