Beyond Words

We are now stocking copies of Beyond Words, which is the new 2017 anthology from the Stornoway Writers Group. Their new publication has a forward from Peter May – author and is sure to be of interest to many of our customers.

Beyond Words includes over thirty stories and poems, written during 2017, that feature the Outer Hebrides and highlight the theme of this year?s Faclan, Ultima Thule. We are thrilled that acclaimed author, Peter May, has shown support for the project by contributing a foreword.
He said, ??it was with such great pleasure that I read the work of the Stornoway Writers? Circle, prepared for publication to coincide with this year?s Faclan Festival. Here was the work of writers who had dipped deep into the creative well, drawing to the surface stories and poems and essays that entertain and inform, stimulate and provoke. Real writers, honing their craft by hewing words from the culture that has nourished them, and the land that has bred them.”

The cover of Beyond Words features artwork by Lewis-based artist, Gill Thompson.
