Writebulb is putting together its very first anthology – and we want you to be a part of it.
Tentatively titled ‘The Other Way Is Essex’, this will be a collection of creative works from Chelmsford’s friendliest writers’ group. The anthology will encompass short stories, poetry and more about our county, its people, its landmarks – and, yes, even its stereotypes.
We’re calling for any and all writers to join in. You can write anything: prose, short story, poem, limerick. It can be fictional or non-fictional, it can be from any genre. The only criteria is that it is about Essex. Beyond that, you have free reign.
Selected entries will be printed in a limited run of the final anthology in August 2012 and made available online and through the library. The final anthology will be sold to raise money for Farleigh Hospice.
Send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 30th, 2012. Please keep entries to less than 5,000 words and use the subject line “Essex Anthology”.
If you want to know more, email the address above, or come join us. We meet every second Saturday of the month in the upstairs meeting room in Chelmsford Library. We’re also on Facebook – just search for Writebulb.
