The Portico Sadie Massey Awards

Calling all young readers and writers

Saint Paul’s pupils have submitted several award winning entries to The Portico Sadie Massey Awards in previous years.

Each year The Portico awards multiple prizes to young people in book review and creative writing categories. They work with authors to deliver workshops across Greater Manchester and promote essential skills in communication, creativity and critical thinking. Their focus is on supporting the school curriculum to help develop talents, boost confidence and above all, encourage a life-long love of literature.


Send your competition entries by midnight Friday 15 March 2019 and be in with a chance to win book tokens, an author visit for your school and to see your writing in Time Travellers and the Crystal Dome, published by Seven Arches Publishing.

Don’t forget to complete an entry form for each submission!

Then send your entries to [email protected]
