Post Writers to be published alongside J.K. Rowling announced

At the end of May we announced a contest by Waterstone's in which writers could win the chance to be published in a book alongside J.K. Rowling. Those 4 lucky winners have now been announced.

The What's Your Story competition asked that entrants write a short story on an A5 story card, to celebrate the launch of 13 story cards written by celebrities (including J.K. Rowling) and auctioned off to aid Dyslexia Action and English PEN. Waterstone's received 6,000 entries in total. The winners will now have their stories published in the same book that will contain those tales written to raise money by the famous authors. The book goes on sale next month, which features the James & Sirius prequel written by Jo, to aid the aforementioned charities.

The winners are;

Tessa Farlow of Bath Waterstone's for The Day a Robot Appeared in the Vegetable Patch

Gemma Laws of Waterstone's Durham for A Sense of Disappointment

Martin Kelly of Waterstone's Bradford University for Mr Darcy, We Hardly Knew Thee

Ellis Ni Raghallaigh of Dublin Jervis Centre for How I Met Your Father
