I've Got Something to Say

Anthology with Women’s Voices South West France

An eclectic collection of short stories and poems by members of the newly formed Women’s Voice South West France writing group.

There is no theme for the anthology as we wanted contributors to feel a sense of freedom in their voice, whether it be persuasive, descriptive, humorous, maternal, political (our list of possible voices was long).

Dip into poems, short stories, political comment, illustrations and reflections on the day to day, each author showing her unique style of engagement with the written word.

Nikki contributed three pieces to the book, “The B word” poem, First Impressions (an excerpt from my book “What have we got Toulouse” and a poem entitled “Reawakening”
