Just under a year ago, I launched Shaggy Blog Stories: a blogging anthology which went on to sell over 500 copies, raising over £2000 for Comic Relief.
This year, Peach has picked up the baton, in the form of You’re Not The Only One: a brand new blog-to-book project, with a brand new theme, a brand new editorial team, and a brand new charity.
The theme: You can basically write about anything you like, provided that it describes a personal experience. As Peach says:
We would like you to submit a written piece about something you’ve been through from any aspect of your life that you want to share. It can literally be about anything: your relationships, your past, a road not taken, being a parent, an illness or your regrets etc. We’ve called it “You’re Not The Only One” to reflect the camaraderie of blogging.
The team: Peach has recruited an all-female crew, consisting of herself, Ariel, Ms R, Sarah and Vi. However, just because the team is all-female, this doesn’t mean that the contributors all have to be female. Indeed – and this is another change from Shaggy Blog Stories – you don’t even have to be British.
The charity: Roughly £4.30 from every copy sold will be donated to WARCHILD.
The details: Full info can be found on Peach’s site. If you’re spreading the word, then please be sure to include the same link.
This should be an excellent project. Can’t wait to see the finished article.
