  • We were so impressed by the incredible amount of entries to the Young Writers competition. This competition gave students the chance to write a poem through the eyes of a person or anything of their choice. Well done to all of the students who submitted poems. These have been received by Young Writers headquarters and the editorial team is working through the submissions. There are some talented writers within the DSTC community so fingers crossed we have a winner this year!
