Our Anthologies

We’re currently working on our fourth anthology. Learn more about our previous three anthologies below.

Rebellion and Revolt: a Bardstown Writers’ Anthology (3rd anthology).

The collection has a loose theme of insurrection/rebellion and includes short stories, poems and non-fiction.

The cover was designed by Callum Bates, former student, from Stratford-upon-Avon college. 

Chilled to the Bone: a Bardstown Halloween Anthology (2nd anthology).

Chilled is a delightful collection of ghost stories and poems, some with a local theme.

This handbag-sized book is the perfect gift for those who like their spines tingled and their goosebumps bumped! Chilled to the Bone was launched at Waterstones bookshop in Stratford-upon-Avon on 30 October 2015.

The cover was designed by Grace Kemp, former student of Stratford-upon-Avon college and was chosen for the anthology by the writers’ group as part of a cover design competition.

Book Launch at Waterstones, Stratford-upon-Avon
