A trio of aspiring writers from Neale-Wade Academy will have their short and spooky stories published after being successful in a nationwide competition.

April King, Jordon Peachey and Sam Howat wrote a story of less than 100 words that featured tension, suspense and atmosphere as part of a ‘spine-chiller’ mini saga.

Their stories were selected to be published in a book called ‘Spinechillers’, consisting of entries from around the country.

The final winner, which is now being judged, will be announced this summer and will win a prize for them and their school.

Kirsty Stone, English teacher, said: “I am very proud of the students for their effort and the confidence they have shown to submit an entry to the competition.
