Portsmouth Writers Are The Ones To Watch

Published: 6th March 2013 06:57

 A new collection of work from Portsmouth writers will be launched on March 7th at The Square Tower, Old Portsmouth at 7.30pm.

"Writers To Watch" is an anthology of stories, poems and longer book extracts that was originally showcased by 20 Portsmouth writers during the 2012 Portsmouth Bookfest.

Dom Kippin, Literature Development Officer for Portsmouth City Council said, "The original idea for the 2012 Bookfest was that 20 writers should present their work for 12 minutes a piece over the length of the Bookfest. They gave their readings in libraries in Portsmouth. The quality was so high, we decided other people should know about this."

Matt Wingett, one of the writers who appears in the book and editor of the anthology says: "Portsmouth has been the home of some great writers from the past. I am proud to be associated with new writers in the Portsmouth area who have very distinctive voices and clear visions of what they have to say. This book showcases their work."

The launch, at the Square Tower in Old Portsmouth will have short readings from 10 contributors to the book, as well as a break for tea and a chance to chat with the authors. It starts at 7.30pm and entry is free.
