More Creative Writing Success at EVC!! 

 

We are very proud to announce that Second Year Students Kelsey White Burke and Katie Nolan have been published in the Irish Times Fighting Words supplement. The annual publication takes submissions from students across Ireland and is judged by a panel of established writers. Enniscorthy Vocational College is the only school from Co Wexford to feature this year.

Alan Gilsenan of the editorial committee commended the writing saying it  "delve(s) into the possibility of imagination,"  "these pieces of writing capture something of the true energy and resourcefulness of our younger generation".

Kelsey and Katie are part of a strong tradition of creative writing at EVC. The Creative Writing Club has nurtured many young writers and celebrated much success in recent years. A special thanks also to English  teachers Ms. Jessica Doyle, Mr. Brian Stack and school Librarian Ms. Eadaoin Quinn who nurtured the creative writing skills in both Kelsey and Katie.
