It led to an enormous personal, political and professional learning curve. Hallelujah for 50ft Women is their third anthology of women’s poetry. Their first book, In the Pink (The Women’s Press), sold thousands and was reprinted six times…This book has been selected from over a thousand submissions. New poets published here for the first time are proud to share this anthology with established writers such as Selima Hill, Kim Addonizio, Jackie Kay and Helen Dunmore.

Secondary Character: ‘ The twenty-eight stories collected here offer a wealth of both connection and contrast in plot, theme and style. By its nature the short story is capable of leaping into the reader’s imagination to vivid and startling effect, as demonstrated here; from the supernatural in ‘A Ghost May Come’ to the psychologically charged in ‘Marco’s Eyes’ to the poignant ‘Theft’ each story in this diverse anthology plays with both the everyday and those profound and life changing emotions of loss, jealousy and regret…CONTRIBUTORS Kay Beechey Susmita Bhattacharya Justine Bold Carole Burns Luned DeSimon Karl Drinkwater Frances Hay Nic Herriot Carly Holmes Nigel Jarrett John Lavin Malcolm Lewis Barrie Llewelyn Jo Mazelis Shelagh Middlehurst Elizabeth Morgan Lynda Nash Kate North Bethany W Pope Diana Powell Whyt Pugh Colum Sanson-Regan Gareth Scourfield Danny Shyla Thomas Stewart Christina Thatcher Rhys Thomas Susie Wild’ In my story a personified Death stalks a man living a quiet life in Wales.
