Stories for Homes 1

rotten row front copy

The first Stories for Homes anthology was published in 2013. Known and emerging writers were invited to submit stories on the theme of Home. After a rigorous editorial process, 63 stories were selected for the anthology. All the production and administration was done on a volunteer basis, and every penny of profit from the book goes directly to Shelter.

It is available in both paperback and e-book format from selected bookshops, Amazon and Create Space store.

Stories for Homes 2

The second Stories for Homes anthology is due for publication in September 2017. Once again, writers were invited to submit stories on the theme of home and 55 pieces have been selected for inclusion. A further 29 stories will make up our online anthology, with a new story being posted each week.
