Updates from Paragram Press:
Paragram press has exciting news about two projects for 2016:
Writing Home – to be published by Paragram Press in July 2016
This anthology of memoir and fiction from Sunbury based Riverside Writers contains rich and memorable writing from this women’s writing group. Publication by Paragram Press is planned for mid-summer 2016.
The idea for this exciting publication emerged from a Life Writing course led by poet Sally J Blackmore which the Riverside Writers started last September.
Life writing was a new concept for the group and mining their own memories for poems, memoir and fiction writing proved so rewarding they decided to gather the pieces into an anthology which will be on sale here, so be on the watch for news of publication.
Paragram Paradox Prize – a helping hand from Paragram Press
Paradox – we all know what it means but when it comes to finding a good story line for the idea, things are not as simple as they first appear. At Paragram we like to offer as much help as we can as great ideas make great books and we want the next Paragram anthology to be one of the best reads published in 2016.
To that end our latest blog offers some useful prompts and ideas about paradox –
Planning a Paradox for a Paragram Prize
The blog includes links which will be helpful to anyone still at the thinking stage for an entry. They may even prompt those who have already made one entry to contemplate a second submission at the lower price of £4.
