WORDSMITHS in Year 7 at Stratford School are now newly published writers.
The 14 students all successfully entered the Young Writers competition that English teacher Molly Cains had suggested to them.
Every entrant had to write a piece of flash fiction under 100 words on a specific subject.
The successful students had their pieces published in a compilation book entitled ‘Intergers’.
Miss Cains said: “It was really exciting for the students to have their work appreciated in this way. We are always looking for ways in which to expand our students experience and enjoyment of English and there is nothing like the personal triumph of being published to engage someone with the world of literature.”
She added that the students had the publishing bug now and to look out for more of their work over the coming months.
