News of the anthology

First, just a quick reminder: the submission deadline has now closed although we are still holding space for one or two pieces where authors have contacted us prior to the deadline. And having sifted through the entries and begun the process of editing and type-setting, I can tell you that there's some extremely fine writing. The entries range from poetry (taking many different forms) to flash and longer fiction; some works are clearly part of a larger project, others are stand-alone pieces. All have the hallmarks of well-crafted and original pieces of writing, and we're really looking forward to the finished project.

We had hoped that, by now, a partner charity would be on-board and we'd be at least some way down the road of teaming up in order to provide them with the profits from this little enterprise. Unfortuantely, things have not gone smoothly and we've been somewhat let-down by our first choice. This is where you come in. If anyone out there - either connected with the anthology or not - has contact with a charity that they think might be a willing partner, then please let us know. It can be large or small, but preferably national so that buyers across the UK can identify with it and support the cause. Please either email or leave a comment below; we'll do the rest.

Further details of the anthology to follow. Watch this space!
