Young writers at Gordano School have taken part in a poetry competition.
Over the winter months the Portishead pupils were asked to submit pieces which were judged by Huw Powell, who lives in the town and created the Spacejackers book series.
Katie Tripp was the winner of the years seven to eight category – as well as the overall prize.
Huw said: “This poem is incredible with its powerful language and vivid imagery.
“Katie has a bold style in her rejection of capital letters and punctuation, focusing instead on the divine subject matter in all of its descriptive glory.
You may also want to watch:
“Her work is reminiscent of the metaphysical poets.”
Madeleine Browne’s Rivers Of Change won the years nine to 11 prize and Rhiannon Woodland was crowned the sixth form champion.
