The result, illustrated by Rose Cowan and edited by Lynne Bryan and Belona Greenwood, is a bold, honest and vivid narrative of local lives. Published by Unthank Books, it tells of lost halls, early morning walks, stillness, fairy-light skies, telescopes on allotments, the loneliness of grief and the adventure of new places in rural Norfolk. The writers in this book are new to writing but their stories and observations are compellingly authentic.
Here is some background information on the project:
Norfolk Library Service, in conjunction with Words & Women, has received an Arts & Libraries Grant from Arts Council East to work with local women in rural communities to create an anthology about their lives.
