Talented writers launched their fourth collection of short stories and poems at the weekend with the help of a BBC journalist.
The Attleborough Writers’ Group unveiled their fourth anthology in four years on Saturday, which was launched by Look East chief reporter Kim Riley, who praised the imaginative and moving story-telling.
Fourth Write is dedicated to Enid Scoging, a former member of the writing group, who died earlier this year. The writing group was established following the conclusion of a creative writing course in Attleborough four years ago and has ten members, who write as a hobby.
Mr Riley said he enjoyed reading Fourth Write, which was “well written stuff.” “I admire people who deal in imagination and it is much more difficult to come up with a story that moves you,” he said.
A raffle at the book launch helped raise funds for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
Two hundred copies of the latest anthology have been printed and cost £4.99 and are available in shops in Attleborough and on Amazon. You can also email email@example.com
