The West Midlands Readers’ Network presents a showcase of commissioned stories, the result of collaborative working between writers and reading groups.

The Network paired six regional writers with six reading groups from across the Midlands. Each writer was given a few key narrative ingredients by their group and asked to throw in some magic of their own in order to conjure up a memorable new story. Here are the results, in the form of seven minute extracts, performed by the writers themselves, who are: Helen Cross, Lindsay Stanberry- Flynn, Richard Lakin, Jeff Phelps, Fiona Joseph and Polly Wright.

Come along to this special showcase event and pick up your free limited-edition copy of all six stories in full. Expect storytelling deeply rooted in place, laced with intrigue, history and wild, imaginative flourishes.
