Three Points West: Free book of short stories and poetry

For Hillingdon Arts Week in 2012, I produced an anthology of local writers, showcasing the best work from writing groups based in Ruislip, Uxbridge and Yeading. The book was printed using Lulu and sold in libraries and the local Waterstones. It is available for free download now as a PDF file, so you can read it on your computer or iPad, or print it out.

It's an inspiring and diverse collection of short stories and poems, all of which appear for the first time in this book. From family drama to fantasy, and from horror to comedy, there's something for everyone inside.

Thank you to everyone who contributed their time and talent to this project. In addition to the many writers (listed below), Charlotte Baldwin led the project and worked with Darren Deeks to drum up the contributions; Alison Beer read all the submitted entries and selected those that would appear in the book; and photography studio Art by LAW created a great photograph of Charlotte's vintage typewriter for the cover.
