I have been to book launches before, but never to one which has involved my own work. So this was a big FIRST for me. Some contributors had been selected to do readings, but I was one of the lucky ones who just got to sit back and enjoy it all. Also, as a contributor, I got a free drink. The readings went well and I was awed and humbled by the talents of my fellow writers.
The 44 Square anthology is available to download from the 44 Square Fiction website and here are three good reasons for taking a look:
1. You will read some excellent pieces of work,
2. written in a variety of styles and covering diverse subjects,
3. and it is absolutely free!
Along with the 44 Square Fiction anthology, there is a 45 Square Poetry collection and a 46 Square anthology of non-fiction writing. Both of these I am looking forward to reading.
Note: 44 Square Fiction is a new anthology produced by the final year writers on Birkbeck’s BA in Creative Writing course. Work was selected and edited by the fourth year students, with submissions open to all years.
