The Say It Right Writers Circle was born on 1st January 2014. For the next 12 months 5 writers took it in turns to pick monthly themes to work on. Every month we wrote 700ish words each. These short pieces were shared among the circle and then published online. Our writing could be about anything as long as it somehow related to the monthly theme and covered a variety of fiction, poetry and non-fiction.
This anthology contains the material produced by the circle. It contains 5 distinct voices exploring topics as diverse as sport and work to spirituality and rebellion. Collecting over 60 unique pieces of writing, the anthology is equal parts thoughtful and irreverent, humorous and emotionally charged. It shows 5 writers learning their craft, finding new ways to be creative and celebrating a DIY approach to culture. And, with each piece a manageable length, it’s the perfect escapism for your tea break or daily commute.
