‘New Writing 15’ Launched

Sophie Goodwin, the British Council’s Literature Department Web Editor and Information Officer says:

New Writing 15 is launched today so take a look at the accompanying website New Writing.

New Writing 15 is the British Council’s annual anthology of the finest contemporary writing in fiction, non-fiction and poetry, selected by Bernardine Evaristo and Maggie Gee.

Each month the website has a new theme, which is accompanied by a selected text from the book. In the writing featured in this month’s focus, which takes as its theme the idea of Public Spaces, the normal boundaries of appropriate behaviour are stretched, but in a restrained and private way, which subtly reveals the personal dramas taking place beneath an apparently calm surface.

The site is aimed at readers and teachers all over the world and offers different ways into some of the very best of British writing. These include notes for teachers, notes for readers, author interviews and glossaries and we will be adding more on a monthly basis, focusing on a wide selection of short stories, poems, novel extracts and essays.
