Product Description

From the Publisher

University of Kent students publish their own short story collection
Story published at 12:08pm 7 June 2005

15 third-year English students at the University of Kent will launch a book of their own short stories on Thursday 9 June at the Gulbenkian Theatre Café Bar on the University’s Canterbury campus.

Titled Ante: A Collection of Short Stories, the book is the students’ response to what they have perceived to be publishers’ indifference to the form. A spokesperson for the group said: ‘While studying short fiction last year, we started to wonder why there weren’t more collections of short stories by young writers with something to say. When we heard that this was because publishers ‘don’t like’ short fiction, we decided to publish our own collection.’

Working to tight deadlines right through their final exams, the students not only contributed to the collection but they also learned how to be their own editors, designers, financial advisors and marketing team. So impressive was their efforts that Peters Fraser and Dunlop, one of the UK’s leading literary agencies, contributed time, advice and financial support to the project, while the Independent on Sunday published one of the stories – The Wading Bird by Vicky Norman - on 5 June.

Other contributors to the book include Dave Shaw, Eliot Nash, Pete Martin, Andrew Treen, Kate Begernie, Sam Oborne, Toby Pengelly, Stephanie Davies, Helen Lillis, Chris Burgess, Tara Lakin, Peter Quach, Michelle Perree and Amy Gargya.

Ante: A Collection of Short Stories will be launched on Thursday 9 June, 4.00pm at the Gulbenkian Theatre Café Bar, University of Kent. Everyone welcome.

I think the best novel in this book is Andrew Treen's "I hope I see"... but maybe it is because that author is really inventive and really physically attractive.... He rocks!!!!!!!
