Full Circle - an Anthology from ARS Concordia

Long story short: if you go download this anthology, you'll find my short story "The Calligrapher" on page 203. There were several errors I found long after the last deadline, so I apologize for all of them here (particularly the part where I put furniture inside a mosque--my thinking was that since it was still under construction, that was okay... evidently I was wrong).

It's not "being published" like dear incandragon, but it's nice that I found acceptance and received compliments during this process. Now if I could just finish the rest of the story...

Online Writing Group Publishes First Anthology In Memory Of Its Founder

Full Circle

An ARS Concordia Anthology

The ARS Concordia online writing group has published its first ever anthology in memory of the man who founded their organisation.

Full Circle was penned by the writers of ARS Concordia, a world-wide collection of writers, in testament to Roy Abrahams, who died last year.

The 285-page book, which contains a number of poems, stories, articles, and novel extracts, was a long time in gestation, and as editor, Colin Galbraith, explains, it was Mr Abrahams’ death that proved to be the final catalyst.

“We had talked about doing an anthology as a group before,” he explains, “but it never really took off until Roy died. When that happened it gave everyone a bit of a jolt, I think, and the project seemed to take on a life of its own. It’s been a long time coming this book, but I think it has been worth every bit of the wait.”

One of the groups longest serving members and contributor to the book, Devon Ellington, said of the anthology: “It seemed like a fun project for our writing group. I hope it dispels the myth that a writers’ group must be made up of people writing in the same genre.”

Full Circle has been written by 23 writers of various nationalities, religions, backgrounds and persuasions, and it is this that Ellington believes gives the book its strength. “I think it can set a positive example for writers’ groups – a positive environment inspires good work, and the point of ARS’s creation was to provide a positive environment to stimulate growth and creativity.”

Full Circle is available to purchase from 1st August 2007 from Smashing Press for cost price only. No profits are being made from the sale of the book.
