Our NEWS in brief...
Jul 2020 - this month
VEGAN TALES volume 3 has been open for submissions all year.
As you might expect there is some doubt as to whether we will produce it this year. Submissions are few and we are waiting to see if there are more.
At the end of this month we will make a decision. Should we need to defer submissions to next year your entry contributions will be returned to you in early August .
We hope you are all keeping well and have had no losses during this difficult time. Our thoughts are very much with our existing writers and also those we welcome to our community for the first time.
Our MISSION is to promote positive change. We currently do three main things:
We publish BOOKS whether focusing on food, or positive fiction, all of our books focus on themes to #buildaculture and #writethelight
We operate a COOK EVENTS where our cookbook writers follow through by showing people how it's done. #VEATS
We support SHORT STORY writers giving voice to change in our annual anthology Vegan Tales. #writingmatters
Now we have added a fourth thing, reducing waste and supporting book sales by dealing directly with bookshops by
- operating without Amazon,
- reducing transport for stock by by-passing distribution centres,
putting more money in the tills of independent booksellers through better margins,
playing some small part in combating our climate crisis,
shining a light on the Vegan Tales series and
reaching new writers.
If you are an independent bookshop in the UK and would like to be included please contact us.
