ORDS AND WOMEN Three is the third showcase collection of short prose by women writers in the East of England. The memoir, fiction, and creative non-fiction inside reflect the brilliance, boldness and depth of women’s contemporary writing in the region.
This year’s anthology is an eclectic collection of high quality prose, a rich and vivid read of startling, compelling and moving texts set across the world and close to home. Explore the unexpected: bellydancing in Japan, the collapse of bricks and mortar in an ordinary street in an ordinary town, drugs buried in a Norfolk beet field or sample a still life on Brixton Station. Why does a canary sing in Kabul? What is the significance of the calf born in the snow? Infidelity and revisited virginity, sinister origami and movie-making, the true nature of Jane Austen’s dog and murder in Mexico.
This is a book for the curious featuring winning entries from our annual new writing competition. This year’s guest judge Emma Healey, author of ‘Elizabeth is Missing,’ has selected a range of texts that show us what it is to be human.
