Our City: Leicester

£535 of £1,500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 4 months

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!
Take a listen to this from BBC Radio Leicester .
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. So many, many thanks in advance.

A bonus event on Monday December 3! From 10am till 12 there will be a Writers Group at Prana in Leicester. Hopefully someone who attends will submit a piece to the anthology. Prana, a beautiful vegan and vegetarian cafe on Horsefair Street is the ideal venue for this event. Come along, buy a drink, get to know everyone and do some writing!

Many thanks to all who have donated so far. You can't believe how grateful I am! This means so much and will help pay for proofreading and various workshops I will be putting on to promote the book. You will of course all be invited to the book launch where you will receive a copy of the book and a glass or two of wine! See below for what it might look like when finished.
