Purple Lights - Edited by Leone Ross

ISBN – 9780992858131

New writing from the University of Roehampton


Detailed Description

Writers are often asked: ‘Where do you get your ideas from?’ And we always tell our students – it’s not the idea, it’s what you do with it, that counts.

So why not ask a different question: How did writers choose their form, and why? Is it a haiku, a sonnet, or a prose poem? Is it forty thousand, eighty thousand, one thousand, one hundred words long, and how did that help express an idea? Is it fifteen seconds of footage or a feature-length film?

This, our third student anthology, includes: explicit sexuality, swearing, madness, fragments of the apocalypse, the fine art of serial killing, and a very troubling clown. It also includes a tender treatise on old age, a story about parents lost to tragedy, sibling love, and a father so worthless, you could hit him. There is prose that is really difficult to read and poetry that is really easy, and much in-between.

'A beautifully edited anthology – some real gems.’

Rebecca Swift, Director, The Literary Consultancy
