Our City: Leicester
I am editing an anthology of creative writing about Leicester. I want to
see passion and love for the city and county on paper and am confident
that out there are the writers who can achieve this. I have started
campaigns on Twitter and Facebook to attract them and am waiting
now for the stories to pour in.
I have a publisher for the book, the wonderful Dahlia Publishing from
Leicester who champion local writers.
The funds will be used to pay for Proof Reading, Publicity of the old
fashioned type, namely flyers, Workshops connected to the book on
Editing and Writing as well as the costs of the book publishing itself.
I am hoping to start the editing process in January 2019 and the proof
read soon after, so if we could achieve the target by Christmas that
would be fantastic!
To get support for this project in what are really difficult times for
everyone would be fantastic. It would mean the world to see people
getting behind the idea of Leicester. A bit like when Leicester City won
the Premier League. In fact that would be something that someone
could write about if they wanted to get involved. I want this book to
represent the feelings and ideas of the people of Leicester, but would
appreciate support from outside of the county as well, again much like
when City won when there was a groundswell of support throughout
the country! I think they inspired a generation and I would like this
anthology to do the same. So many, many thanks in advance.
