A perfect time to announce the contributors to our upcoming anthology, What Meets the Eye? The Deaf Perspective…
John Kefala Kerr
Lisa Kelly (Editor)
Mary-Jayne Russell de Clifford
Melanie Jayne Ashford
Raymond Antrobus (Preface)
Sarah O Adedeji
Sophie Stone (editor)
The book is due out in September and will be accompanied by BSL videos for every piece. All the contributors are Deaf, deaf or hard of hearing, and some of the submissions were received in BSL, so there will be translation going on in both directions.
I can’t believe I forgot to put anything up on the website! I did a newsletter, put up the individual book pages, then got on with the work that results from good news! Anyway…
After what turned out to be months of form-filling we have secured Arts Council Funding for this year’s Solstice Shorts Festival, and the next four books, including taking them on tour, and for four sessions of The Story Sessions (more later!).
We do have to raise some money ourselves – brace yourselves for more Crowd Funds – you can also help by becoming a FRIEND of Arachne.
