The Newsletter

The July Newsletter was increased in size from 16 pages to 20. Each publication, free to members, has a run of 100 or more copies according to demand and features extracts of members' work, and specially written items for the publication based on the theme: 


Theme for our next newsletter: DISCOVERY

Discovery – We discover many things in our journey of life. New places, inner meaning, mental strength or treasure. All of us have different questions which we seek answers to. What discovery in your life has been the most meaningful to you? Did you discover how sketching or painting filled a void in your anxious mind, or did you discover that travel helps you feel less restless?

In addition to writing on our theme, we also welcome book reviews in every issue. Those need not have anything to do with the theme. 

Deadline for submissions is 22nd September 2018.
Our email inbox is waiting for your entries.

New Project Being Planned

The Committee is looking into the idea of a half yearly 'super newsletter' possibly with an ISBN and possibly on sale to the public. We are looking into a publication of around 100 pages. More limited in scope than our major Anthologies, but more ambitious than the current Newsletter. The publication to be written to a theme but to include fiction and nonfiction, poetry and extracts. Some illustrations may be included. The publication be published on Kindle and similar outlets.

The objective is to increase the level of publication of members. Members of the public may be invited to submit material.
