n A collection of stories written by participants of the popular writing courses at Derby-based arts centre Quad have been published in a new book.
Quad has held a range of writing courses over the past three years, aimed at both beginners and established writers, run by writer, editor and tutor Alex Davis.
Quad Writes is a brand-new anthology from Derby-based press BooHoo Books, featuring work from some of the local authors who have been on these courses.
For many of the writers featured it is the first time their work has been published, with stories ranging from the simple beauty of love and magic through to the darker worlds of stalkers and vampires.
