Greenwich Creative Writing Anthology Launch

Wednesday, 29 November 5-7pm, 2017 – Waterstones Greenwich.

Both John Wilks and I have been tutors to this remarkable group who have now produced an anthology of their work – short stories, flash fiction, poems – including pieces by John and me.  Barbara Ward, a member of the group, has been the driving force behind this project.

John and I met when we were students on the MA in Creative and Life Writing at Goldsmiths, University of London. It has been a great experience for us to have been part of the Greenwich Creative Writing Group.

All profits go to the Greenwich Foodbank.

Funny Bone

60 authors, 60 stories. Each story is no longer than 360 words long. Witty, poignant, entertaining, this anthology includes some of the best short short fiction writers around, including Lydia Davis, Roddy Doyle, David Gaffney and Gemma Seltzer. There is one by me too! Edited by Peter Blair and Ashley Chantler. The perfect little Christmas gift – and all money goes to Comic Relief.
