PDF Download – Young Writers' Club: The whole magazine

The Young Writers’ magazine is out at last! Over the past year we’ve been working on a Living History project. Friends and family from our grandparents’ generation provided us with plenty of information about how children grew up in the past. Contributions were sent to us from all over the world. We will be selling the magazine on a donation basis, in support of the QBES Förderverein, and it is available from Ms Wagner, in room 114.

Dear Reader,

Thank you for purchasing the Young Writers’ magazine. This is our first publication and we hope you enjoy the intriguing stories and excellent artwork. The Young Writers’ Club started in 2016 and has been open to all students who love writing and storytelling. In this edition we have focused entirely on the QBES Living History Project which aims to strengthen relationships between today’s young people and their grandparents’ generation. Our stories, plays and poems will be published at a later date.
When we started the Living History Project we were delighted by the large number of
contributions sent to us by friends, grandparents and other family members from around the world. They are a fascinating reminder of times gone by. Reading those childhood memories and reminiscences in the context of world history is both moving and humbling, considering the dangers the older generation faced during their lifetime.

At this point I must acknowledge the commitment of our young writers who gave up their lunch hours to be part of the writers’ club. A big round of applause to them all. Only the most dedicated students turn up week after week and produce interesting and original work. The success of our project is primarily due to their perseverance and hard work.
I would also like to express my gratitude to Ms Kuntzsch and Ms Wedeu, who supported the club from the beginning and provided the initial spark of inspiration. They were as pleased as we were, by the many positive comments we received from a large number of senior citizens, grandparents and friends, all of them eager to pass on their wisdom and humour us with their personal anecdotes. Finally, a big thank you goes to Ms Montana whose creative and technical input was essential in putting our magazine together. We hope you enjoy reading it.
With best wishes from,
Ms Wagner and the Young Writers
