Creative writing contest at a Reading Week

Every November students at Publio Virgilio Marone take part in a Reading Week and last time they also included a creative writing competition, during which they were encouraged to continue writing a story from the beginning sentence they were given at the start of the contest.  Every story evolved in an original,  imaginary way and it was fun  comparing the different stories that started from  exactly the same first sentence! Other students tried poetry writing and still others preferred to create illustrations promoting either their favourite literary works, or some renowned figures from literary studies. All the works were later displayed at school and  the competition winners awarded.
