We’re publishing our first book!
15 Views of Jacksonville: Stories from the Bold City is the first anthology of short stories set within the city’s borders and will be a cultural milestone as a literary snapshot of today’s Jacksonville.
Told by 15 authors who live or have lived in the city, the collection is honest and beautiful in it’s own way. A must-have for Jacksonville natives, transplants, and travelers to NE Florida.
Contributors – Sohrab Homi Francis, Mark Ari, Marcus Pactor, Michael Wiley, Christopher Hooks, Hurley Winkler, Tim Woodward, Terri Youmans Grimm, Duncan Barlow, Tiffany Melanson, Laura Lee Smith, Jackie Hutchins, Nan Kavenaugh, Alex Ender, Shane Hinton
From the editor – “15 Views of Jacksonville manages to do what many have yet to accomplish: bridge the divides of our artistic community. Poets, teachers, doctors—revealing the 360 degrees of unknown experiences, sharing the reality of living in the Bold City of the South in the twenty-first century.” – Caleb Sarvis, book editor
