Our Refugees and Peacekeepers anthology is nearing completion and will be proof-read next week. We are so happy with the result and very thankful to our contributors, including those short-listed from our writing competition earlier this year and existing Patrician Press authors. Special thanks go to Ian Shaw for his afterword, Wersha Bharadwa for her short story and Kenneth Stevens for his poem, as well as to George Szirtes and the Bishop of Barking for permission to use their quotes in the foreword.

We are hoping copies will be ready for our book sale event at First Site Art Gallery in Colchester


on Saturday 10th December from 12 – 3 pm.

All available Patrician Press and Pudding Press paperback books will be on sale and we are holding a specially-linked Christmas raffle with some exciting and surprise prizes. The event was booked at First Site by Emma Kittle-Pey, one of our authors, and we are all very excited about it.
