Talking past/present/future, based on the inevitable and in the name of development we're re-establishing ourselves at urbanwordcollective.co.uk, where you can now exclusively buy Lyrically Justified 1 & 2. We'll also provide various word related services, building upwards, forming new relationships with professional media producers, BOV, the police (proposing project work with young people at risk), The Radical Herbal Gathering, UWE, PEAK entertainment, The Disability Forum, Bahati Books, Kamitan Arts, Paper Arts, and others, which will help elevate UWC to the next level. Our end of year report might say "Well done, considering the barriers faced, but the learning can be crucial."
The lyricallyjustified.co.uk site remains active but focused on the how, who, where and when in relation to the anthologies.
Mainly due to persistence and tenacity we thank goodness we're finishing the year on the up, with continual prospects to help develop both established and emerging writers, and a real possibility of becoming a publisher. So lucrative looking offers and proposals are welcome. We're out to prove that with networking, interconnectivity and mutual support we can become another household brand but with credibility and authentic clout.
Other BIG NEWS involves the consideration of a 3rd Lyrically Justified anthology, and with lessons we remain ambitious as we head to a future which should see us working with old and new allies. The wonderful and conscientious Michele Curtis will feature with illustrations, enriching the product. And we now provide poetry and other creative writing workshops. Once again we thank all supporters who have helped to bring us here, and the not so helpful who have shown us light.
