Celebrating communities - with a theme!

The students were from three local post-primary schools in Carrickmacross, Crossmaglen and Keady. They wrote fantastic stories together that celebrate the areas they come from within the gothic genre.

The stories will be included in the forthcoming publications featuring the work of the thousands of young authors who have participated in the Story Seeds project since September 2023.

Fighting Words and Fighting Words NI are grateful to Creative Ireland and the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports & Media for the support of this project.
