The Magic Oxygen Literary Prize 2014-15 was a truly unique international writing competition that sought excellence in two categories; short stories and poetry.
This anthology contains the 10 best pieces and winners from each category. They were awarded the highest marks by 21 judges from around the world, which were whittled down from almost 800 entries received from 31 countries.
In association with the Community Carbon Link, we planted a tree for every single entry received in a tropical Word Forest in Bore, Kenya.
For every purchase of the anthology in paperback or e-book, we will plant another tree in the Word Forest and we’ll also contribute royalties that will fund the building of an urgently needed classroom at the Kundeni School.
Aside from the benevolent and sustainable reasons for buying this book, it is a fantastic read! The stories are first class and the poetry will undoubtedly rock you too.
You can place your pre-order in our online shop and we will despatch paperbacks and e-books on Saturday 14th February, which is also the day the winners will be announced at the Lyme Literary Festival in Dorset, which we are helping to pull together.
If you’d rather buy your copy from your local High Street, that’s absolutely fine with us! The paperback will be available to pre-order from your local bookshops in early February and we’ll post details here nearer the time.
