“…this anthology is wonderfully enthralling and the passion that oozes from each page is unquestionable.” **** Femalearts.com
Medway-based ME4Writers are proud to present their new book – City without a head – an anthology of creative writing written over several years, which was launched on 8 October at the Rochester Literature Festival.
City without a head is based on ME4Writers’ long-running writing project: The City Project aka Encyclopaedia Citaecephale, where they created non-definitions for an alternative encyclopaedia which was printed in a series of 8 limited edition zines and left around Medway (and further afield).
The book is a collection of poems, stories, interlinked sci-fi fragments and found writings collected in the form of an index by ME4Writers’ regular authors Barry Fentiman, Sam Hall, SM Jenkin, Anne-Marie Jordan, Sarah March, Tara Moyle and Roy Smith. It also features illustrations by award-winning artist Victoria Wainwright. The aim of the book is to try to define what the authors feel about living in cities, and take a sideways look at our urban predicament. This is a theme which many of ME4Writers’ projects respond to.
City without a head has been published by Wordsmithery and costs £12. You can order a copy from www.wordsmithery.info
