Once upon a time there were some Year 8 students who visited Special Collections and were inspired to write and illustrate their own fairy tales.
Taking their inspiration from some of the fairy tales in Special Collections, and with support from the School of English literature, Language and Linguistics and the School of Arts and Cultures at Newcastle University as well as Seven Stories and Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, the students wrote and illustrated their own fairy tales.
Their illustrated stories were published in an anthology, a copy of which was presented to each student who took part in the project at an end of project celebration event.
The schools involved were Excelsior Academy, St Cuthbert’s High School and Park View School.
Find out more information about the project on the Vital North Partnership blog.
