COSTA Book winner to Bluemoose Books

SEASIDE SPECIAL - POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE.

There is an opportunity for 5 new writers to be published alongside award winning writers: Andrew Michael Hurley, Carys Bray, Paul Kingsnorth, Peter Kalu and Kirsty Logan in a short story collection.

Bluemoose Books are looking for stories from new writers and new voices for an anthology of short fiction set on the North West Coast edited by the award winning writer Jenn Ashworth.

From the bright lights of Blackpool to the eerie calm of Morecambe bay, from the port of Whitehaven down to the dunes of Formby, we want your stories. We're interested in the untold tales: the seasonal workers, the overlooked natural world, the off-peak and under-written. We're interested in tales from the edge: edge of the country, edge of society, and perhaps even the edge of a life.

The story must be previously unpublished, set on the North West coast of England, and be no longer than 6k words. The writer doesn't have to be born, live or work in the area to write about it and we're looking for surprising perspectives and diverse voices.

(For the purposes of this collection, 'new writer' means they haven’t previously published a book-length work of fiction, poetry or creative non - fiction before).

To submit: the writer needs to send their work as a word doc email attachment to jenn.ashworth@gmail.com - Including their name and contact details, and a short bio.

Deadline: September 15th 2017 - entries submitted after this date will not be read.

Contact: Kevin Duffy - kevin@Bluemoosebooks.com
