In every child is the most wonderful imagination which, if we're not very careful, as the years progress, we lose to adult responsibilities. Anything that encourages imagination, that helps children keep hold of those, sometimes, spectacular fantasies, is an obligation on the part of parents, teachers and people like us, authors. This is why New Writers UK and Nottinghamshire Library Services became partners in creating an annual Creative Writing Competition for Children. This book is a compilation of entries by the competition finalists. An assortment of poems and stories, some joyful, some dark, some brave, but all from the wonderful world of ..imagination!

This is the tenth year of our annual creative writing competition and, during that time, imaginative children and young people of the county have made us laugh or cry, entertained and inspired and shared their sorrows, joys, hopes and fears. From primary school year four to eighteen years old, many have entered several times and their writing has developed and matured each year. Sadly, this is the last year some were eligible to enter but, with their level of talen, if they continue writing, they could well become successful novelists, poets, scriptwriters or playwrights in the future. Some former entrants are now at universities studying medicine, midwifery, pharmacy and engineering etc. And we wish them well for the future. It has been a privilege to know them and we hope they will still find the time to write.

Over the years, stories and poems submitted to our competition have included themes of murder, time-travel, war, thefts, the supernatural, monsters, friendship, love and sacrifice. The young people of Nottinghamshire have entertained us with their imaginative writing, some tales have been thought-provoking, some humorous and, occasionally some have been tragic. I hope these wonderful young people will continue to enjoy writing stories and poems just as much as we enjoy reading them. Julie Malone Founder and president, New Writers UK

As you will read within these pages, Covid-19 has touched many of our young writers. But, like any adversity that has to be faced, expressing fears, distress and hopes in writing can help up cope with our emotions during difficult times. In all previous years, we have been able to hold an awards presentation for our finalists. A second event when finalists are presented with a copy of the published collection of their stories and poems, would always follow later in the year. This year, due to social distancing and safety regulations, holding these events may not be possible. Whatever happens we will find other ways to congratulate our incredible young finalists, encourage them in continuing to keep their imagination alive and support them to persevere with their writing. And, there's always next year! Julie Malone, Author Jae Malone, Founder and President

There were times during 2018 when I thought we would be able to continue this annual competition. Funding to councils and community groups has ben seriously depleted over the last few years, making it difficult for many much needed organisations to continue; and we were in that category. Thankfully, earlier this year, a funding award was found enabling us to continue encouring our county's young people to let their imagination fly and enjoy writing. With the support of families, teachers, acclaimed and award winning authors and poets, I am delighted to present this, our eleventh volume of 'Nottinghamshire Children Tell Tales'. It has been a great pleasure, and an honour, to get to know so many young people over the last eleven years, who have the potential to be our great authors of the future and maintain the remarkable reputation for literature Nottinghamshire has long held. - Julie Malone, Founder and President, New Writers UK

When writers allow their imagination to run free, we can enjoy their written creations; novels, short stories or poems. Many of these are then turned into scripts and the screenplays of television shows and films by other writers who have vision. Without the imagination of writers who were encouraged as children, where would these wonderful examples of theatre and screen production come from? To ensure we have authors such as Roald Dahl, J K Rowling, Neil Gaiman and Jacqueline Wilson in the future, it is up to us to nurture hte imagination of our young people. - Julie Malone, Founder and President of New Writers UK

In Telling Tales, Joel Rosenthal takes us on a journey through some familiar sources from fourteenth- and fifteenth-century England to show how memories and recollections can be used to build a compelling portrait of daily life in the late Middle Ages. Rosenthal is a senior medievalist whose work over the years has spanned several related areas, including family history, women's history, the life cycle, and memory and testimony. In Telling Tales, he brings all of these interests to bear on three seemingly disparate bodies of sources: the letters of Margaret Paston, depositions from a dispute between the Scropes and Grosvenors over a contested coat of arms, and Proof of Age proceedings, whereby the legal majority of an heir was established. In Rosenthal's hands these familiar sources all speak to questions of testimony, memory, and narrative at a time when written records were just becoming widespread. In Margaret Paston, we see a woman who helped hold family and family business together as she mastered the arduous and complex task of letter writing. In the knights whose tales were elicited for the Scrope and Grosvenor case, we witness the bonding of men in arms in the Hundred Years War. From the Proofs of Age, we have brief tales that are rich in the give-and-take of daily life in the village - memories of baptisms, burials, a trip to market, a fall from a roof, or marriage to another juror's sister.

An account of the progress made in the provision of education in Nottingham in the nineteenth century. Dr Wardle makes full use of the evidence of newpapers, contemporary accounts and statistics relating to population, child employment, public health, welfare agencies, and charitable organisations to produce an integrated study of the educational, social and economic aspects of a town's growth over 100 years. The experience of Nottingham is compared (generally favourably) with that of other cities. The full use of newspapers means that areas of the educational picture usually overlooked are here given due prominence; for example, the numerically significant private schools, and the lending libraries organised by groups of workmen. This book gives a vivid picture of the growth of our educational system, not only as it was seen by the administrators, but also as it was seen by the parents, and pupils for whom it was intended.
