After a brief absence

Of what seems like forever – we’re back! With a call for writing from North Devon writers to contribute to an anthology for next year. So dust off those pens, keyboards and notebooks and get writing.

The anthology will be peer reviewed and we won’t publish everyone but we’ll try and use as many as possible. We know high the standard is at the Barnstaple library groups alone! Editors (all published writers) will select the best work to put together into a book that you can order on Amazon or put on your Kindle. There will be opportunities for you to polish the work up to publishable standards along the way. This is a not-for-profit anthology – run by consensus although the editors will shape the final publication. We also plan to have an open mic launch so contributors can showcase their work to an audience of writers and readers. I would welcome offers of help at the compiling/publishing/launching/publicity stage!

So: DEADLINE: 31st March 2015
