Tales for Canterbury via JC Hart

Initial Announcement:

Christchurch, New Zealand, and the wider Canterbury region, was rocked yesterday (22.2.11) by another round of serious earthquakes. This time they struck during the middle of the day causing more devastation, and loss of life, to a city still trying to pick up the pieces from last September’s quakes.

In an attempt to do something, anything, to make a difference, we are putting together an anthology of short stories loosely themed around survival, hope and the future. All profits of this anthology will be donated to the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal, or another registered charity aimed at aiding those in need in Canterbury.

The purpose of this Anthology is two-fold—to help financially, but also, we hope, to provide entertainment and alleviation in a time of crisis. We hope that our words will help make a difference.

We have already begun to approach authors, and the response is encouraging. Mainly due to time pressures, this anthology will be by invitation. However, if you are an established writer, and keen to contribute, please feel free to get in touch with us at just.cassie.hart@gmail.com. We are looking for stories between 1,500 and 5,000 words, of fairly upbeat nature in the general, literary, science fiction or fantasy genres.

Feel free to repost this and get the word out!

    This IS a fantastic idea. An Australian writer friend of mine lives in an area struck by disasters and they are doing something very similar.

    Fellow crusader – nice to meet you!

      AWesome! the writing community is so kind and generous, and I’m so happy to know so many writers like Cassie and Anna who are willing to help/”pay it forward”

      Thanks for following (i’ll eventually get a fancier looking RSS subscribe button 😉 )! I admit, I’ve been behind on the Crusade follows because of issues at my pay the bills job, but I hope to make it up over the next few days!

    Bravo. I applaud this effort to assist those in need, with writing no less. I’m touched and impressed and spreading the word.
