A Bury St Edmunds pupil will see a short story she wrote published after taking part in a creative writing competition.

Molly Lovejoy, from Culford School, was challenged to write a mini saga in just 100 words in the Young Writers Welcome to Wonderland writing competition for 11-18 year-olds.

Molly’s entry will now be published in Welcome to Wonderland – Tales from Norfolk and Suffolk in January 2018.

Ruth-Ann Radlett, English teacher at the school, said: ““To be successfully chosen, pupils needed to show creativity and imagination, as well as originality and use of language.

“Molly incorporated mystery, the macabre and an emotional touch to her story, with clear success.”

The school opened a £2.2million library in September 2015 and other recent developments at the site include a £2m boarding house refurbishment, the new studio theatre, refurbished music school and art gallery, new ICT suites throughout the school, and a championship-standard four-court indoor tennis centre.
