It’s about this time of year that all those involved in publishing literary travails begin to get a little infected by the coming of Spring – and normally quote from a famous ode or sonnet to start their blog or marketing e-mail.
Well, we at i-Witness are going to be no exception so here’s a quote from the Bard (Sonnet 98, actually).
From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April dress’d in all his trim
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laugh’d and leap’d with him.
It often happens that Spring, and the coming of, is a time when the Muse may visit you more frequently and you set about tapping that cursor to produce something that you might hope to get published. If so you might consider sending us those words – especially if it’s poetry, because we don’t have enough poetry to consider. Not just poetry but, indeed any form of prose that stretches the definitions of writing – something that dares to be different.
Not just poetry of course. We have published quite a few plays. OUR DAILY BREAD is a play about child abuse that has had over 1200 performances worldwide but was never published. Recently updated, and still as fresh, passionate and relevant OUR DAILY BREAD provides an audacious exposé into the darker side of post- Brexit Britain. Pronounced by prominent press globally as ‘the perfect two-hander; poignant and powerful, funny and frightening’
OUR DAILY BREAD is still being performed thirty years after its premiere – and we are privileged to have been able to help get it published.
If you’re a writer or just starting out on that ‘long lonely journey’ you might consider contacting us, and we’ll send a free small guide on how to self-publish.
