Coming soon – more posts on the way. Come back soon to read more from our published authors and get a behind-the-scenes look at Jorja Publishing!
Hong Dam (visit website) worked with the Jorja Publishing Special Interests Team to publish her first book “Dreaming of Home”.
This is an art and poetry book telling a story of love, loss & hope. Hong Dam escaped the Vietnam war and was a refugee in Hong Kong and the UK. This book is simply captivating. Hong Dam held her first solo exhibition in 2014 in Brighton, winning the runner up best show as voted by the public through the Argus newspaper.
Congratulations to our competition winners in the following categories:
Adventure – Hannah Wilson -the lonely Robot
Magic – Imogen Conetta-Browne – Witch Wazoo
Mystery and Suspense – a tie between Krieni Ayuba Trapped and Poppy Boyd – It always rains
An additional winner is Josie Croucher (6S) – Brotherly love – this author will be offered to expand the story (with the help of an editor) into a chapter book.
I must say a huge thank you to Mr Chris Youles for co-ordinating the whole process and congratulation all the entrants and enormous credit to all the teachers.
There were some absolutely fantastic stories and I wish we could publish all of them.
