Writers Unleashed

Writers Unleashed is the umbrella title of a new initiative, the aim of which is to create anthologies so that both new and established authors can get their work into circulation and promoted across a wide area.

The first two volumes, Gin City, focuses on the writers and artists of the city of Plymouth. The Writers Unleashed volume is in progress which has submissions from Indonesia, Mauritius, Nigeria, and a few closer to home.

We are actively seeking submissions for GIN CITY 3 and the WRITERS UNLEASHED volumes.


Edited by Jon Mackley and Nick Ingram

This is the first volume in a new initiative which brings together work from both established and up-and-coming writers and artists, providing a new platform for their work. This volume contains some of the very best of poetry and prose coming out of the city of Plymouth – the Gin City It brings together a variety of unique and exciting voices in contemporary poetry and prose that deserve to be heard and demand publication. Evocative, provocative, poignant, political, nostalgic, and sometimes addressing challenging issues close to the authors’ hearts: there is something here for everyone.

Please check out the contributions from each of the authors and illustrators. If you enjoy the work in this volume then please let others know about the Gin City project. Please also support the authors by looking for their other work or follow to see if they are performing at any live events.
