I should have blogged about this weeks ago but have been too under the weather to think straight.
A week or so ago The Cwrtnewydd Scribblers 2011 collection of short stories, poems and memoirs was published. A Way With Words is our third anthology and this time we are excited to say it contains the top three winning entries in our Summer sun, Summer fun short story competition. This was such a success and such fun to do that we are holding another competition in 2012. Details on how to enter can be found inside A Way With Words and will also be published on the website very soon. Remember that 50 pence from every copy sold will be donated to Wales Air Ambulance, an invaluable service to people who live in rural areas, as we do.
The Cwrtnewydd Scribblers are a group of women from the tiny rural hamlet Cwrtnewydd in West Wales. Every part of the publishing process (bar the actual printing) is undertaken by us, from writing to designing the cover. We launched this third collection, A Way With Words, at Lampeter University's Christmas fair last Saturday and were all delighted when the first print run SOLD OUT by the end of the day. A second print run will be available soon.
