Year Starts on a High!

As we plough headlong into the third week of the new year, we are delighted to relay some news.

Hay Writers’ Circle member, Alan Oberman’s forth coming book, “Ellie and Sapiens“, has been accepted by Arkbound publishing. Arkbound specializes in supporting authors from disadvantaged backgrounds and works dealing with environmental and social issues. As you may have read from our previous article, Alan’s new book deals with climate anxiety in young people.

The book will be published next spring.

Huge and well deserved congratulations to Alan, and to the members of the Work In Progress group too. As Katy Stone, HWC Chairperson writes – “It’s testament … to the genius of the buddy system of our little Work in Progress Group, so a Brava! too for Marianne (Rosen’s) tenacious support and encouragement as well as dreaming up the group and buddy concept.”
