Klara and the sun by Erin Keyes Yr 12
I based my submission off a book I read recently that I really loved - Klara and the Sun. It’s a beautiful book set in a alternative future following the life of an AI called Klara and her observations and relationships of the family she’s sent to live with. It’s really interesting to create artwork for it featuring Klara as it reminds us what what we forget - she’s only technically a machine.

Summer's Day by Tammana Atkin Yr 12
In response to the brief of 'word', I decided to create a song using the work of someone renound in the literary world - Shakespeare. This song is 'Sonnet 18 - Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day?' put to music. I decided to choose this sonnet as I believe it to be one of Shakespeare's most recognisable pieces and the wonderfully emotive language inspired me.

Lizzy Pop is about the reluctance that arises in the face of letting things go. In my story, Lizzy represents the part of me that wants the best for me. I saw a picture of how sunflowers turn towards the sun when it’s rising, and I was inspired to write this poem thinking of how beautiful that is.

The third column.
This submission is inspired by my favorite books, and how they can transport the reader to a different world, whilst also introducing the idea of telling untold stories and dissolving hate in the world. Reading is universal to us all, and can and should be accessible to all, which in this poem I am aiming to showcase.
