Student shortlisted in writing competition
24 March 2017
The English Department would like to congratulate Year 12 student Gaia Wales, whose entry to the Martin Wills Memorial Trust Writing Competition has been shortlisted for consideration by the competition’s judges.
This award is for fictional or non-fictional writing on a horseracing theme. Gaia’s short story, about a thoroughbred who escapes from an abusive stud farm, is among only a small number of shortlisted entries by young writers from around the country. Gaia will find out over the course of the next few weeks if her piece is among the winners.
Congratulations and good luck, Gaia!
