‘Words From a Distance’ Anthology Published

I’m delighted that Words from a Distance, our gorgeous new anthology has been published by Stairwell Books! I am so proud of all the writers who contributed to this and grateful to have had this positive focus during an incredibly challenging time. Huge thanks to my wonderful co-editor Amina Alyal for sharing her knowledge and expertise and for making it such an enjoyable experience.

“Although we were going nowhere, we travelled great distances together.”

Who would have thought in that chilly back garden in March 2020 when we were wondering what to do with ourselves, that 20 months later we would have this beautiful anthology of fiction, memoir and poetry in our hands? 

Thank you to all the writers who came on this journey with us: 

Amina Alyal
Angela Reid
Bebe Stables
Carole Burgess
Deborah Ripley
Elke Heckel
Heather Curwen
Judith Biddlestone
Kate Cook
Rebecca Bailey
Sarah Newington
