After winning numerous awards for his story, 'The Rose Seller', it came as no surprise that Little Star Writer Ishaan was shortlisted for the Wicked Young Writers Competition 2015, too. Supported by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall and Michael Morpurgo, Little Star Writing travelled with Ishaan and his family to the London Apollo Victoria Theatre, and thoroughly enjoyed hearing the winner's stories, watching Ishaan take part in an on-stage challenge, and receiving a copy of the finalist's story in an anthology.
Once everyone had left, we then got to go on stage and meet Head Judge, Cressida Cowell (author of 'How To Train Your Dragon'). After chatting about Little Star Writing and explaining a bit more about what we do, Cressida even gave some personal feedback on Ishaan's story, saying 'that Rose Seller story was very moving'.
We couldn't be more proud of Ishaan or more grateful to the organisers of Wicked Young Writers for the fantastic opportunity to help celebrate the talent of our young writers.
