In February, we invited schools to participate in a research project aimed at using artificial intelligence to enhance the feedback provided to students on their creative writing. Students submitted a piece of fiction and our AI system provided feedback on the plot, character development, genre, and setting. We also offered prizes to the best three stories as identified by the AI system. We are excited to announce the results as follows:

Gold Award: The Summoning of Eyes

(George Watsons College, by pupil A)

The unique premise of ghost summoning with a mix of humour and horror creates a compelling read. The character’s voice is distinctive and the narrative is engaging, particularly with its vivid descriptions and the twist of Steven’s character revealing deeper layers. We loved this story and The Summoning of Eyes is a worthy winner of Achieve’s 2024 Gold Award for creative writing.
