IsleWrite Anthology Launch

Join IsleWrite to celebrate the launch of their new anthology. This group of creative writers have been going in some form or another for twenty years, but their power to push boundaries and impress never gets old.

Based on the glorious Isle of Thanet – history-redolent and more than slightly special – IsleWrite is a group supporting writers from all walks of life, many from other countries. Some write fiction, short stories, novels and plays, some write memoirs; others prefer poetry. Each has a story to tell. Live music links storytelling by authors – from Kent country life to Canadian childhood, Venezuelan villains to native American Indians … and more.

‘A collection of powerful writing, from an area of the country whose literary reputation has until now rested on visitors rather than residents.  The pieces in this anthology speak of a diversity of experiences, both personal and imagined, and range in form from the traditional to the experimental; they often speak, however, to a shared location, and combine to give Thanet its own literary identity.’ 

Dr John Morton – Associate Professor of English Literature, University of Greenwich
