The Great St James Write off

To celebrate the beginning of the St James Literary Festival, St James School is holding a Staff vs Student writing competition.

All you need to do is look at the first paragraph of a story on the next slide. How does it continue?

Mr Foster will be continuing this story for the staff tomorrow. We’re looking for a rival paragraph from the students. At the end of the two weeks will staff or students have the best story?

What if…the lights went out?

It was dark outside. Really dark. Obviously with winter approaching Catherine expected it to be getting darker but when she peered outside there wasn’t even a glimmer of light. Mrs Jones’ lights weren’t on, which was unusual as she was normally up and about at a ludicrously early time. The street lights weren’t illuminating the pathway. No twilight was breaking through the thick clouds. There weren’t even any stars in the sky. Catherine could only see a faint outline of the woods on the hillside; a darker shadow against the purple sky. Maybe it was still night and she’d woken up early. She leant over to switch on her bedside light. Nothing. She tried the switch again. Nothing. A power cut maybe? She found her watch and pressed the button to illuminate the digital display. 8.30 am? 8.30 in the morning? Really?

  • What do I do to continue the story?

  • Write the next paragraph, either as a tutor group or individual.

  • Email it to Miss Newton by 9.00 tonight.

  • If your paragraph is the best, it will get published tomorrow on the website and be circulated to tutor groups.

  • If you don’t get published tomorrow, keep trying. The story will continue to be written for the next two week.

  • A good paragraph?

  • Keep it short (150-200 words)

  • Keep continuing the theme from the previous paragraph.

  • Provide answers to the previous paragraph BUT you need to keep some mystery. End with a cliff hanger.

  • Proof read it as best you can.

  • Email Miss Newton by 9.00 or hand a paper copy to your English teacher by the end of the day.
