Young artists from eight local secondary schools were invited to submit designs for a logo for this year’s Wessex Schools Literary Festival. After sifting through dozens of entries a logo drawn by a Year 8 pupil from The Romsey School was chosen.
Jessica’s design of a book tree complete with a wise owl reading will appear on the festival programmes and posters in all the participating schools. Jessica was delighted to receive her prize of book tokens from Head Teacher, Colm McKavanagh.
The Romsey School are looking forward to taking part in the Festival again this year, which will take place in June. Authors who will be visiting Romsey include Steve Cole, author of the Young James Bond series, Sita Brahmachari, Jane Prowse and Gabriella Lepore. Also appearing are illustrator, Kev Sutherland, poet Matt West and local pop-up book artist, Jennie Maizels.
