Leeds Writers Circle Anthology 2011
Published by Valley Press
In 1928 a group of writers in Leeds formed a society dedicated to ‘mutual comradeship and the sharing of practical experience’. More than eighty years later, the Leeds Writers Circle is still going strong, and Valley Press is proud to present this new anthology showcasing the finest prose and poetry from the group's contemporary members.
The contents will be fascinating for any follower of modern literature, as the Circle serves as a microcosm of modern writing throughout Britain - there are brilliant young poets at the start of their careers, wily short-story writers who play their readers emotions with an expert touch, flashes of scripted humour and fascinating biographical tales of Leeds as it was in decades - and centuries - past.
This collection is an essential purchase for anyone interested in the beating literary heart of one of England's greatest cities; it is a portrait and examination of everything that comprises Leeds, and a comprehensive overview of the wealth of writing talent working there today.
