JRC is seeking submissions for our first anthology of local writing!

Short story and/or poetry pieces are welcomed on the themes of ‘hope’,  ‘empowerment’, and ‘opportunity’.

We will be collating some of our favourites into a collection, to be available in print copy via Amazon and directly from us.

This charity anthology will be a celebration of recovery, and an opportunity for our students, friends, and supporters to showcase their work.

Submissions are encouraged by previously unpublished writers – so why not take to your keyboard or put pen to paper and share your thoughts?

Fiction only, please.

Anticipated publication is during November 2023.

Please read the guidelines and terms and conditions before submitting.
