MEMBERS of the Skelmersdale Writers' Group, a community group dedicated to the promotion of writing, have been boosted by a £500 donation from the Co-operative Bank.
The donation will support the creation and publishing of an anthology themed on historic Lathom House and New Park for the benefit of the local community of Skelmersdale and surrounding areas.
Secretary Carol Fenlon said: “We have been considering this project for some time but did not have the funds in place to produce the anthology so this award from the Co-op Bank is a wonderful opportunity to promote the group and involve local people in contributing to the book as well as reading it!
“Many people still do not know very much about the history of Lathom House or of the powerful families that lived there.
“Submissions for the anthology are welcomed and can be fiction, poetry, memoir or creative non-fiction. Anyone interested in writing for the anthology can contact me at email@example.com, phone 01695 728320 or check our facebook and Twitter pages.”
