  • Young Northern Writers' Award (Highly Commended, 11-14), 2022
Ella Youngs

Writing has always been Ella’s escape route into a different world, whether that be mind-bogglingly crazy or eerily mysterious. When she was younger she would devour every book she could get her hands on, and scribbling down stories and poems thrilled her. Writing still gives Ella that incredible, exhilarating feeling just as it did back then. She enjoys experimenting with both prose and poetry as well as giving characters a compelling storyline. Ella hopes to weave her love for words into her future studies.


‘Gaining recognition for my writing is very encouraging and has given me the confidence to believe that I can not only write for myself but it is good enough to share with others, too. There will always be a voice in the back of my mind reminding me that I shouldn’t give up because my writing isn’t as bad as I first thought and I am incredibly grateful for this.’
