Calling all Members  

2019 ANTHOLOGY Crowdfunding Request

The submissions for our 2019 Anthology have now closed and we would like to thank everyone who submitted work for this project. The response has been excellent and the editing committee will soon be hard at work preparing the anthology for publication.  

We are aiming for a high quality journal of about 180 pages that will be a worthy showcase for our members’ works. With an anticipated print run of about 200, the major costs involved will be for a suitable cover design and printing. The committee intends to support local businesses, and we are hoping that you, our members, can help us by crowdfunding all or part of the cost. 

If you would like to contribute to the cost of producing our anthology, no matter how large or small, please follow the instructions below.
