Skyline 2018, the fifth in a series of annual publisher’s anthologies produced by Cyberworld Publishing, showcases the prose and poetry talents of writers who live or work in Central Virginia or otherwise have writing connections to the region. The theme for this edition and this year’s Skyline writing contest is “nighttime on the mountain.”
A wonderfully varied collection of short stories, poems and other work by seven talented writers, based in the lovely town of Usk in Monmouthshire, Wales. Easy reading for a cold winter's evening in front of the fire. Dip in and out as you want and keep it handy so that you can revisit what will surely become one of your favourite collections of stories and poems.
In this collection of short musings, Giselle divulges a lifetime of family secrets. As the adult child of an alcoholic, she shares difficult memories from generations caught in a cycle of violence. But it’s not all doom and gloom. You’ll find a generous dose of gratitude in this book, as well as lessons learned in the search for true, heartfelt, loving kindness.
The poet of Richard III and Lost World now recounts his early memories with a linking narrative and many original photographs. Read of a magical trip to Cowdray Park; of life in an east Manchester manse; a schoolboy’s view of Jim Laker’s cricket Test; of his great uncle lost in no man’s land; and of other family members who died too young.
Experience the awe and wonder of a child who lives in a town in the early 1960's and has a holiday on his Grandma's farm way out in the bush. What strange things will he see? What things will he do that are just not done in town? Milking cows, making butter, emptying the toilet and more. Maybe you will reflect on some of your childhood experiences as you read this story.
