Destinations… Basingstoke & Beyond

BWC's latest anthology Destinations is, as the title suggests, all about travel.

Twenty-seven hugely varied and illustrated poems and short stories take the reader on a journey around the globe. It's an informative and entertaining trip too with factual anecdotal accounts mixed in with fiction including an imaginary voyage beyond our world.

The development of the anthology also led to a journey of a different kind for BWC members… a journey into the exciting world of on-demand digital printing. Editor in chief Tony Corbin said:

"It's been a very valuable learning exercise that has resulted in us having our own ISBN numbers and the ability to produce further publications over time".

25% of proceeds from Destinations will go to Charity. The first to benefit has been Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research. Joan Sullivan from the Circle explains:

"BWC supported Basingstoke's Dave Holby as he set-off on a three year virtual row around the world to raise funds for the charity. We took on the challenge to write a poem to commemorate his Guinness World Record breaking achievement. Destination Basingstoke (written by Tony Corbin) was selected and of course features in the anthology."

Destinations… Basingstoke & Beyond is available at £5 (plus £1.60 postage and packing). It can be ordered via e-mail or via the circle's website enquiry form. In either case please provide your full name and address and a contact telephone number.
