Calling All New Working-class Writers—Paul McVeigh

Belfast author, Paul McVeigh, is the editor and driving force behind a new anthology which aims to publish a collection of memoirs entitled, 32: An Anthology of Working Class Voices. With publication slotted for next spring, the book will feature sixteen well-known authors and sixteen emerging writers from working-class backgrounds from both Ireland and Britain. The project follows on from last year’s anthology, Common People, which focused on English working-class writers. That book was edited by the British-Irish writer, Kit de Waal. The call is out for aspiring writers to submit a contribution for inclusion in the anthology. The closing date for entries is 15 May. To enter, send 2,5000 words of memoir and a 500 word personal statement.
