FWG Anthologies

Fairfield Writers are proud of their professionally printed collections of short stories, produced typically bi-annually through a well-structured group project.

Anthology projects are carefully planned and structured projects designed to provide education and mentoring in short story writing, experience in submitting to publishers, and knowledge about publishing, launching books, author promotion and marketing.

Projects typically run for up to 18 months during which time participants work on their story with assistance and mentoring from other group members. The goal is to assemble a collection of stories of the highest possible quality, all relating to a selected central theme.

Books are sold at launch parties, directly by members, and through local bookstores, and shortly to be available on Amazon. The following collections have been produced to date:
