We are proud to have published and launched ME4Writers’ first collaborative full-length book City without a head, on 8 October 2013.
City without a head is a collection of the best writing from a long-running ME4Writers’ project, which you may remember – where we made 8 limited edition fanzines called ‘Encyclopaedia Citaecephale’ and distributed them around Medway and much further afield.
Well, nobody could pronounce that name, and we wanted to reflect that this was a new, bigger and better collection, written by a group of regular ME4 contributors, so we changed the name, commissioned some gorgeous artwork from Victoria Wainwright for the cover and 5 illustrations inside, and rewrote, added, deleted and edited what we’d had in the ‘zines.
The result is our attempt to define, confuse, capture, expound, tangle, twist, label, and generally riff on life in cities. Writers who feature are Barry Fentiman, Sam Hall, SM Jenkin, Anne-Marie Jordan, Sarah March, Tara Moyle and Roy Smith.
Entries range from story fragments, poems, faux-definitions, found writing to short stories. It is our unique sideways look at life in cities. we hope you enjoy it. We hope this will be the first book of many.
It can be purchased from www.wordsmithery.info for £12 + P+P.
“…this anthology is wonderfully enthralling and the passion that oozes from each page is unquestionable…” **** Femalearts.com (Full review.)
