Event description

Description

An evening of poetry, music and short stories from the very first anthology by the Greenwich Creative Writing Group. Held upstairs in Waterstones,opposite the Cutty Sark. Drinks and nibbles from 5pm, reading from 5.30pm.

Murder;passion; memories;joy; romance. You will find all these themes and many others in the first anthology of Greenwich Creative Writing Group. This anthology was created by local writers and their tutors who joined together to create a 'handmade' collection of short stories, poems, flash fictions and short prose.

This confident collection has something for everyone in it's diverse pieces , the lyricism of 'Albert'; the strongly patterned refrains of 'Moroccan Heist'; the dark humour of ' The Box', which begins " it was the kind of evening that would be perfect for murder" ;the spirit of historic Greenwich in ' A Blacksmith's Daughter' with it's links to Lady Hamilton and Admiral Nelson; the unexpected shocking ending of 'Newsagent'. Several of the collection explore the intensity of relationships: convent life in 'Breaking of The Bread', sibling antagonism in ' Little Cub' , a daughter whose mirror reveals so much in 'Father', the emotional journey of new love in'Paris Dance'.

Publication date is 25th November 2017. Selling at Waterstones, Greenwich, £4.99. All profits from the sale of this book will go to The Greenwich Foodbank.
