Join us for an event to celebrate the release of the 2024 edition of Ten Piscataqua Writers: An Anthology from the Watershed!
Most anthologies are built around a single form such as short stories, essays, or poetry. This one mixes it up, presenting ten chapters, each from a different writer working in the region, to create an eclectic mix of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. Instead of a form, what all writers share in this collection is a common geography-- the Piscataqua River watershed of Seacoast NH and the border towns of southernmost ME. It's a literary smorgasbord for readers in the community to discover, explore, and celebrate ten outstanding literary talents living and writing among us.
This truly is an amazing anthology. I really appreciate how you give each of the writers adequate space. Most anthologies just give a small bite of the work. Thank you!
—Bill Schultz, founder & editor of Hole In The Head Review
The river-centered Piscataqua region of coastal Maine and New Hampshire has inspired writers for generations. Immerse yourself in this wide-ranging anthology to connect with ten gifted wordsmiths.
—John Breneman, writer & editor, Portsmouth and York
Hope is an oak full of crows in a clearing of caws, a shag on a rock, a duck on a bay. These Foerster poems thrive on a chorus of birds, on a shimmer of words, on a flash of sheer insight from his canopy of song. Reader, as you wander this dusk for sustenance, savor these lines: the breadth of their wings.
—John Perrault, author of Season of Shagginess, North Hampton
The Piscataqua region is brimming with terrific writers, and this anthology collects ten of the best. What a treasure of talent awaits the reader in these pages.
