This anthology of poems and short stories was inspired by a writing competition Patrician Press ran in 2016.
The afterword was written by Ian Shaw who volunteered at the Calais Jungle for one year. Quotes were provided by George Szirtes and the Bishop of Barking. Robert McCrum kindly wrote the back cover review.
The collection is edited by Anna Johnson who has also written the introduction.
Donations from proceeds are being made to ‘Help Refugees’ and other refugee charities.
The book was launched at the Essex Book Festival in March 2017 at the Wivenhoe bookshop. Further events were held at Firstsite art gallery in Colchester and in Sheffield and Oxford.
