Writing Our Legacy 2018 Brighton, photography by Bip Mistry.

Join one of our book launches for Hidden Sussex, a new anthology for Sussex, which will take place in London, Worthing, Crawley, Brighton, and Eastbourne.

Writing Our Legacy is thrilled to announce its first print and digital publication, an anthology about the Sussex experience from the Black and ethnic minority perspective. Our aim is to reinvent Sussex Day, which is celebrated in Sussex on 16 June.

Submissions for the anthology are now being accepted until 17 March 2019 – see below for more information – or on our website

The event will feature readings from contributors, an African Night Fever DJ, food and drink refreshment, plus the launch of a new alternative Sussex Day flag.

Copies of books will be for sale (cash and card accepted).

Come help us celebrate the great writing about Sussex!
