Celebrating two writers' groups and introducing a third... Now read on.
These are exciting times for the Firebird Group, as this summer we plan to edit and publish The Firebird Anthology, under the aegis of the new Firebird Press, showcasing the best work from our wide range of authors.
For this we are accepting contributions not only from the core group, who are represented on these pages, but also from previous members of the former Minutemen 350 and Vibe groups.
The anthology, whose theme will be Resurgence,will be designed as a pot-pourri of all genres and forms—fiction and non-fiction, prose and poetry, plays, short stories, speeches and essays— but with every piece demonstrating our founding principles.
These include our commitment to publish writers irrespective of gender,ethnicity or age. We believe the written word is a key to achieving true equality. Further, we are committed to challenging 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 writers. Our aim is to be experimental in what we write, and become the disruptors the literary world needs, in whatever style or form..
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 pioneers. The founder members include poets, prose writers and historians. We know that each one of them has something that you can learn from, something that will enrich your life, that will entertain and teach.
We are the Firebird Writers’ Group. Now read on.
Note on anthology submissions: Final closing date is 31st May 2020. No work can be accepted after this. If you are a former member of the Vibe or Minutement groups and have not joined Firebird please write in for the terms and conditions.
