This month Rushmoor Writers celebrates 25,550 days of writing! We are proudly the second-oldest writing group in the UK and, to mark this milestone, we’ve published an anthology called The Thing About Seventy.
The anthology has tales of love, loss, lockdown, dragons, abandoned houses, dead people, mystical crystals, supermarket rebellions and vanishing numbers. And in each, there’s a thing about seventy.
It’s published by Midnight Street Press, run by former Rushmoor Writers member Trevor Denyer. It includes a foreword by award-winning author Christopher Fielden, who runs a website packed with advice and resources for writers.
Chairperson C.R. Berry said, “It’s very exciting and gratifying to be part of a writers’ group that’s 70 years old. I want to thank the members of Rushmoor Writers who have contributed to this anthology and helped put it together, and Midnight Street Press for publishing it. I also want to thank all members, past and present, who’ve kept the group going these past 25,550 days. I myself have learned a lot since I joined, and the way my own writing has improved and matured is largely down to the feedback I’ve received from these awesome folks! I vehemently encourage all writers to join a local writers’ group because it really does wonders.”
Rushmoor Writers is currently open to new members. Get in touch if you’re interested.
