We would like to give a huge congratulations to Year 9 Darwen Aldridge Community Academy student Nicola Topping. Nicola has been attending the amazing Young Writers Programme at DACA library, run by Janet McCarthy, after school on Tuesdays for the last few years and won the S J Bolton Most Promising Young Writers Award 2 years ago.  She is a dedicated writer and used a pod on the DACA Entrepreneurship Bridge to write her novel last year.

We are delighted to announce that Nicola’s debut novel has been snapped up by a London Publishing Firm,  she just has to sign the publishing contract now to make it official!

We are looking forward to buying a copy of her novel soon and seeing what amazing things Nicola will achieve in the future.
