Twelve year old Antonio is delighted to have his short story accepted for publication by Hashtag Press. Under the name of the Lil Author Skool, the publishers ran a world wide competition for budding young authors up to 21 years to enter their writing. The entries submitted over several competitions were then selected to be printed in an anthology containing 28 short stories.
Antonio said, “My only intention was to have fun writing the story; I was shocked and delighted to have been chosen! I look forward to seeing the book and all the other stories at the launch.”
The anthology titled, The Originals will be released on the 1st March, World Book Day. The librarian had already ordered a couple of copies because another former pupil, Mathis had been chosen for the same anthology in a previous competition. Both boys will be able to attend the book launch together.
