By various authors

A group of desperate writers is at it again, releasing their second book of short stories and poems.

The writers involved in the second book project are Margaret Growcott, Ann Gijsbers, Julia Turner and Deb Oakes. Their work is all set in another time and place: Cathedral Grove and other Port Alberni areas.

The writers bill their work as “a quick, short read, perfect for today’s active lifestyles”. They printed 500 copies and the book is also available in e-edition.

The first Desperate Writers came out in 2007 (Spellbinders Publishing) and included the work of seven authors.
