Root - New Stories from North East Writers

New Stories from North East Writers

edited by Kitty Fitzgerald

Root is a collection of short stories which re-affirm the North-East's status as a vibrant area for new writing. The subjects of the 13 stories on show here range from the domestic - family relationships, gardening, bullying, adoption and loss - to the plain bizarre: a circus bearded lady, a woman who morphs into Elvis, and an insight into what God wears to work.

Contributors include: Jane Roberts-Morpeth, Rob Walton, Pauline Plummer, Crista Ermiya and Stephen Shieber.

About the editor: Kitty Fitzgerald was born in Ireland, and now lives in Northumberland. A poet, playwright and novelist, she has edited two previous anthologies of fiction for Iron Press: Iron Women - New Stories by Women and Biting Back - New Fiction from the North.
