The publication of the anthology has been put back to 31st August.
We realise this is disappointing but the decision has been taken due to difficulties in contacting some writers during the summer period, where changes to the texts, names to be published or biographies have been necessary.
Unfortunately, not all entries could be published but the standard of applications was high and a great deal of time and effort were clearly taken by the writers.
We hope that those who were not successful will not be discouraged as, even among the unpublished stories, there was evidence of imagination and writing skill.
More details about the anthology and the writers will appear here over the coming weeks.
