Abbey Gate College Pupils Become Published Authors Through Amazon Young Storyteller Project

06 Aug 2017

During the spring term, Abbey Gate College pupils became published authors through the Amazon Young Storyteller project.

The project is a collaboration between Amazon and the National Literacy Trust, offering primary and secondary students in the UK the opportunity to have their work published.

The Abbey Gate College book, which has pieces from pupils from both the Infant and Junior School and the Senior School, is an anthology of short stories and poetry and is available in paperback and Kindle versions. There is a range of imaginative stories in the book, from those about dragons and princesses, to space travel and life in the future, as well as dinosaurs.

Teacher Zoe Leonard, who led the project at the Chester based independent school, said: “This project has been extremely successful amongst our pupils; it has motivated more of them to write, and improved their confidence. We look forward to publishing more creative writing in the future in our ‘second edition’!”. You can purchase a copy of the book at, by searching for the book’s author: ‘Abbey Gate College Pupils’. A hard copy costs £9.99 and the Kindle edition is £4.99.
