Young Storykeeper - Five Volumes of Stories, Songs, Poems and More Inspired by Lighthouses
In May 2020, Fighting Words and Great Lighthouses of Ireland invited submissions of original writing inspired by lighthouses from young writers aged 7-12.
Sent to us from every corner of the island of Ireland and beyond, we received over 1,300 submissions and are grateful to each and every young author for sharing their creativity with us.
In addition to the submissions by the young authors, a team of Fighting Words volunteer illustrators and animators created original artwork for the Young Storykeeper project.
The stories, poems and songs were published in five digital volumes from June to December 2020.
Thank you to each and every author and illustrator for shining a light for us all!
Awesome Animations and Songs
A number of stories were also selected for animation by Fighting Words’ talented volunteer team of illustrators and animators.
Some of the stories were even sent in by young animators and songwriters themselves!
