College students see stories published as part of national contest
FOURTEEN students from South Gloucestershire and Stroud College have been selected to have their stories published after entering a competition.
The contest, entitled ‘Around the World in 80 Words’ was set up by a company called Young Writers based in Peterborough.
Aimed at students aged 11 to 18, students were tasked with writing a short story in no more than 80 words.
The group of students studying Level 2 ICT and business were encouraged to join by their teacher Lara Gulotta, who thought it would be a good way for students to be creative.

She said: “The competition was a great way for the students to use their imagination.
“It's hard to write a story in only 80 words but they all worked hard and did extremely well.”
The published book will now be distributed in libraries.
Student Harry Searle, aged 18, from Whitehall, said: “I was shocked and surprised to have my story chosen but very happy.”
Fellow student Chris Lambert, aged 17, from Southmead, said: “I enjoyed taking part. It made me feel imaginative.”
