Submissions are invited for the first volume of The Best of North Notts

Here is an opportunity for you to have a piece of writing published. The first volume of the Best of North Notts will be published in the spring of 2020.

This anthology will contain original writing, fact and fiction, to entertain readers of all ages. Writers are encouraged to submit stories, or factual writing, on any topic providing there is a strong relevance to the North Nottinghamshire region. You can write about childhood memories, about your village, a building, a club, or even about your business if there is an interesting story to tell. Variety is very important to this new publication. Open to writers of all ages. An editorial team will make the final selection of writings based on merit and interest value. Authors who are selected for inclusion in the book will receive two free copies of the book.
