A group of Wexford's youngest writers could be the next big authors in the making if their award-winning stories are anything to go by.

Brothers Sean and Ciaran O'Connor from Wexford town recently won games and Easter eggs for their entries into the Wexford Book Centre's short story competition. Visitors Sarah and Emma Byrne also proved that success runs in their family as the pair of Killarney natives picked themselves up prizes for their literary gems. Last but certainly not least was Sam Hoffheinz from Wexford, who scooped a book and an Easter egg for his own work of fiction.

The competition was organised by the Wexford Book Centre in honour of World Book Day. A prizegiving ceremony was made all the better as staff dressed up as our favourite book characters on the day.
