First Story

First Story

First Story is a national organisation that works with secondary schools to develop creative writing skills and confidence and we are delighted to be working with First Story again this year at Chelsea Academy.

Our students have the opportunity to apply to be a member of the First Story group at the Academy and get involved in an incredible creative writing opportunity. Workshops will run on a Thursday after-school and students will also have the opportunity to attend creative writing events and festivals, enter their work into competitions, and finally, become published authors themselves when their writing is published in a beautiful anthology at the end of the Academy year. We will then celebrate the students’ achievements at a special launch event of their First Story in the Summer Term, at which family and friends are invited to join to hear the young people read their work, and share in their success.

If students are interested in being involved, they will need to submit an up-to-500 word short story to either Miss Allen or Mr Lowry by Wednesday 2nd October. Letters will be sent home to those who have been accepted onto the programme and the workshops will then start on Thursday 10th October. If you have any questions about First Story, please email
