Bardstown Writers' Anthologies



Third Bardstown Anthology now Available!

The Bardstown Writers' third anthology: Rebellion and Revolt: a Bardstown Writers' Anthology is now out.

The anthology has the loose theme of insurrection/rebellion 

Our great cover was designed by Callum Bates, a student from Stratford-upon-Avon college. 


Learn more about the first two anthologies below.

Shards from the Bards: a Bardstown Writers' collection was the first anthology produced by the group and was published in September 2014.

It contains a selection of twenty short stories, poems, flash fiction and articles, some with a Stratford or Shakespeare theme.

Copies can be bought directly from us. Please order through our Contact page.

The price is £4.50 plus postage and packing (£1.20), i.e. £5.70 in total.

The Bardstown Writers are extremely grateful to Simon Gooding Production Management Ltd who kindly sponsored this anthology.


Our second anthology, Chilled to the Bone: a Bardstown Halloween Anthology, is a delightful collection of ghost stories and poems, some with a local theme.

The cover was designed by Grace Kemp, an ex-Stratford-upon-Avon college student and was chosen for the anthology by the writers' group as part of a cover design competition.

The book is available locally from The Creaky Cauldron & Magic Alley, 21 Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon and also directly through this website for £4.50 plus postage and packing (£1.20), i.e. £5.70 in total.

Please order through our Contact page.

This handbag-sized book is the perfect gift for those who like their spines tingled and their goosebumps bumped! Chilled to the Bone was launched at Waterstones bookshop in Stratford-upon-Avon on 30 October 2015.
