During lockdown in March, Molly Conners (who then was in Year 4) completed a six-week Creative Writing Course hosted by R.A. Powell, children's author. As part of the course, she wrote a story entitled A Trip to Rainbow Island to enter the Rainbow Writing Competition which the author ran during the summer.
Since then, R.A. Powell has worked remotely with other children from across England, Wales, Scotland & Australia. Molly's story has been selected as just one of 58 rainbow-inspired tales written during lockdown by children as young as four, up to 15 years old.
The book 'Rainbows during LOCKDOWN' is due for release on Tuesday 15 December 2020 via Blossom Spring Publishing and will be available online at Amazon & Waterstones. 100% of the author’s royalties are being donated to ICUsteps and School-Home Support.
