Lincolnshire's Young People's Book Award

In July, the Priory held the awards ceremony of the LYPBA (Lincolnshire's Young People's Book Award). The event was a great success, with no less than seven people involved in the book industry coming along to spend the day with us.


 They were:

  • Georgia Twynham - Author
  • Cassandra Parkin - Author
  • Linda Chapman - Author
  • Jackie Buckle - Author (and winner of the 12 - 14 category)
  • Ellis Delmonte - Author and Publisher
  • Sara Bullimore - Author and Event Organiser
  • Matt Timson - Illustrator - Books and Comic books

The event was also visited by five other schools, of both primary and secondary age:

  • The Priory Witham Academy
  • Lincoln Christ's Hospital School
  • Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School (From Horncastle)
  • Greenwich House (From Louth)
  • St. Andrew's Primary School (From Woodhall Spa)

There were also representatives from the LYPBA readers and members of the Writers Inc.


The event itself consisted of questions from our own Kian Hearnshaw, as well as a chance to meet and greet with the writers themselves.

A big thank you must be extended to Mrs Coggan and Tarina Jones for organising the event.
