Lacuna Writing Competition 2020/21
We are very excited to announce the winners of the 2020/21 Lacuna Writing Competition. We were impressed by the number and standard of the submissions. Each submission is worthy of praise and the competition has shown a real talent for storytelling in the Law School which is fantastic to see.
We are thrilled to announce that our Postgraduate winner is Ruby Turok-Squire. Ruby's fantastic piece entitled "Call the Teacher" addresses the educational challenges faced by local refugee children, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our Undergraduate winner is Amber Shah. Amber's evocative and engaging piece entitled "Move" is written in the third person and tells the story of being a refugee from the perspective of Sayeka, a 7-year-old child.
Impressed with the quality of submissions, two further pieces were Highly Commended by our editors. Anokhee Shah, for an important piece highlighting police brutality in Kenya and Salma Eleyan, for an evocative story about fleeing Palestine.
As a prize for their achievements, Amber's and Ruby's articles and Anokhee's and Salma's blogs will be published in Lacuna Magazine in the following months. Please keep an eye out for their excellent work.
