For a few years now a group of Albany, NY writers have been meeting weekly to write and talk. Three years ago we started to get together for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and our community has been steadily growing and developing since then. Now we are a group of friends, a safe space for writers of all ages, genders, beliefs, and genres to work and be appreciated. We have recently realized just how many talented writers there are in the area, yet very few us have had our works published, and so Pub518 was born. Our goal as a company is to help local writers get started in the publishing world and have their works seen by the public.
Our first project, an anthology titled "Dark and Bitter" is a collection of short stories from authors originating in the 518 area code. The title comes from our favorite type of coffee, often enjoyed while writing. Without that dark and bitter brew our company might not exist.
"Dark and Bitter" contains eleven stories from various genres. The anthology is nearing completion, having gone through multiple edits. We are looking for supporters to assist us with set-up and publishing costs. By backing us, you are helping not just a company but a community of artists who just want to share their works on a wider scale.
We look forward to putting your contributions to good use.
