Nearly 200 students from a Worle secondary school have taken a first step into writing careers by having stories published in an anthology.

Worle Community School pupils in years seven and eight submitted stories as part of a young writers competition called Welcome To Wonderland.

The youngsters were challenged to write a dystopian mini saga, a story of just 100 words, exploring life in a strange new world.

The group rose to the challenge in fine style, and more than 190 students from the Redwing Drive school have now seen their work published in the finished book.

Worle principal Jacqui Scott told the Mercury of her pride at the students’ achievements, and said: “We are thrilled so many of the students were selected for publication.

“This is an amazing achievement and a real reward for their high effort levels.”
