Report from the Edinburgh Anthology Launch

The Brighton Prize 2017 anthology was launched in Edinburgh at the Golden Hare bookshop, with readings from the anthology by local writers who took half of the main prizes this year.

Overall prize winner Paula Hunter read ‘Wait’, Douglas Bruton read his joint second –placed story ‘The Mixing Up Of Love And Hate’, and short-listed Joanna Piesse read Sewn By Ann Yates And Eliza Worth In The Year 1818.

The readers had a packed audience who thoroughly enjoyed the stories, including the organisers Julie and Alice.  Running the launch in Scotland meant our prize winners could perform in front of their friends and families. It was a great success.
