LATEST: The Resurgence anthology is coming very soon... Now read on.
These are exciting times for the Firebird Writers' Group. We are now very close to publishing Resurgence: The First Firebird Anthology under the aegis, aptly enough, of the Firebird Press, showcasing the best work from our wide range of authors.
For this we have received contributions from all of our current nine members, many of whom previously played an active part in the Minutemen 350 and Vibe groups.
The anthology, with a cover design by Ben Holland and line illustrations by Alexandra Simonovic, has as its common theme resurgence in all its meanings. It is a powerful pot-pourri of genres and forms, embodying our founding principle of allowing writers irrespective of gender, ethnicity, disability or age to be published. We believe the written word is is a great leveller, and key to achieving true equality. Further, we wish to challenge the norms of society, whether in the form of social conventions, or in the elitist hierarchies which close out some of the most talented and original writing. Our aim is to be experimental in what we write, and challenge the current orthodoxies of the literary world.
In short, our collective ethos is that if there is something to say it should be shouted from the housetops. We set no boundaries on expression.
In the menu are listed this group's current members: poets and prophets, loners and lovers, spinners of yarns and mapmakers of the heart. We know that each has something that will entertain, inform and enrich your life..
