Note: This is news, but not the news I hinted at here last week. Sorry, but you have to wait a little longer for that...
It is available in the following formats:
Paperback - direct from the publishers (The Hysterectomy Association)
PDF version to download and print out, perfect if you want to avoid postage costs
The anthology contains all ten of the winning stories and all ten of the winning poems and has been laid out so that they are each as readable as possible. It's available in both paperback and various eBook formats (for the Kindle, ePub and as a PDF to print out). At just £5.50 for the paperback and 99p for an ebook it's great value for a lovely read.
The stories and poems reflect the many different aspects of things that are important to women, we share in the ups and downs of events which span time and experience. We learn what it's like to lose a child of any age, the reaction of spurned lovers, good and bad marriages and the rivalries of school friends that have never quite made it out of the playground.
The poems are equally insightful, sharing the experiences of lost youth and looks; a sense of history in a children’s home and the call to action that asks us to live life to the full, waving our hands in the air.
Contributors and Winners in the anthology are:
