There we were, on a sunny morning sat by the pond at Westleton, waiting for Bob’s remarkable book shop to open (look here and be amazed), and apologising to the lame duck that had just hiked up the bank to greet us and quack for some food (sorry, we had none).
And there it was: suddenly, there was just one month left open for the submissions to Est, our collection of writing from and about East Anglia. Yes, the submissions period closes at the end of July.
June has been good to us. We’ve had a number of submissions sent in from established and emerging writers – insightful and entertaining stuff, with some strong prose and poetry. There is still room for a few more passengers on the, er, Dunlin Bus that’s heading (oh dear) all the way round East Anglia, however. So, if you have some good writing that you think suitable for our foray into the psychogeography of the region, get in touch. See our ‘submissions’ page for more details.
At the end of this month, the real work for us will begin: sorting through the submissions and plotting our course. We’ll have more news soon – oh, and do follow us on Twitter (@dunlinpress) and check out our other ‘social’ outlets for updates and inspiration (See our ‘contact’ page).
If you have already sent something in, thank you so much. If you’ve yet to, well, the summer won’t wait for ever…
Ella and Martin
