We all love a story

We arrived at Finborough School, Suffolk, England with a Creative Writer, an excited Texthelp team, a few cameras and lots of hope for the day.  What happened next was awesome. Five teams of truly creative individuals, whom unleashed pure writing magic into Google docs.

The result?  Five really cool stories all of which were sent out to the public vote to WIN the top prize... Getting their story beautifully animated by the professional creative team at Texthelp.
