Quay Voices


Packed with sparkling stories and poetry, this anthology from the Quay Words live literature programme showcases creative output from Exeter Custom House as a new hub for literature on Exeter’s quayside. Contributions from fifteen writers including Ray Antrobus, Patrick Gale and Monique Roffey, feature alongside their selections of work by some of the talented new Quay Voices that they have mentored and supported at Quay Words. The theme of People and Places ripples throughout, from Exeter across the globe. All ages are represented, including Young Voices, new writing by children and young people. This is a collection to immerse yourself in and read from cover to cover, or to dip into over and again. We hope it will inspire the reader to join us and get writing too. All proceeds from sales will be invested into Quay Words: a not-for-profit, diverse and open access programme of literature at the heart of Exeter. You can find out more about the programme at:
