My poem The Haunted School is published in this month’s Writer’s News, part of Writing Magazine. I wrote it especially for their children’s poetry competition; the first line just popped into my head and that dictated the theme and the rhyme for the rest. I have decided to plough the second place prize money back into my writing and will be putting it towards a critique at some point in the future. For now I will continue carrying my magazine around and pushing it into people’s faces. “Look! It’s me!”

Congratulations Lou – it’s about time the ‘Help Goddess’ got something for all the love and advice you dish out so generously!
I second all those comments – well done Lou – is it possible to read The Haunted School online anywhere?
Sadly not! Thank you for the lovely comments everyone; you have made my day.
Congrats 🙂 And thanks for such a helpful blog.
I read it well done. I did don’t get around to entering and my work is aimed more at younger children. Maybe you should treat yourself to a little something.
Great news – well done!
What then is this first line? I’m intrigued.
Don’t get too excited… it’s “The haunted school stands on top of the hill”!
Congratulation. I have actually already read it in the magazine and thought it was great. I read it out to my three younger brothers aged between 10-15 and they all liked it. In fact they cannot believe I am commenting on the blog of , and I quote, ‘a-real-proper-writing-person’!
