The 2019 Anthology Is Now Available To Buy Or Download from Amazon Bookstore & Kindlestore!

The Anthology is now available to buy from Amazon in both paperback and Kindle from here. This year we will support the charity that campaigns for fully accessible toilets called Changing Places.

You can find out more about them here. They have a range of interesting resources including the Toilet Map –  http://www.uktoiletmap.org/ – and they can be found on twitter here if you would like to follow them.

We’ll keep you updated on how much we make but in the meantime if you want to read some great short stories and support an excellent organisation which campaigns for one of the ultimate fundamental rights, then head over to Amazon, buy a book or download the kindle book (get through every page so we can earn more money for the charity) and post a review which will, hopefully, support and recognise our amazing creative talent who have put their work out there for us to enjoy.

The Spirit Can’t Be Confined – A Musical Reading by Margarita Meklina & Maja Elliot

A Musical Reading of the Short Story ‘The Spirit Can’t Be Confined’ By The Author Margarita Meklina

Margarita Meklina, awarded second place in the Perito Prize 2019, has been kind enough to produce and perform in a reading of her short story ‘The Spirit Can’t Be Confined’. This isn’t just any old reading though because alongside story writing Margarita also has a talent for music so she has got together with long time collaborator Maja Elliot to read her story with musical accompaniment.

The music and Maja’s singing really add something magical and very different to the experience. It draws you even deeper into the story and really sets the scene, smells and the experience of living as a disabled person in the Soviet Union.

You can find Margarita’s performance at the usual podcast spot –  and if you would like to find out more about Maja’s work then head over to her site here.
