Expert Council of the Eurasian creative Guild (London) for Fiction we invite You to take part in the annual edition of the literary collection “Thread”! The collection is published in London by Hertfordshire Press (UK)
The publication brings together works by authors of different styles and types — representatives of different generations and peoples who were once United by one common cultural space – the countries of the former Soviet Union. Since 2018, the collections have published works by more than fifty authors from eleven countries. The presentation of the collection was previously held in London, Stockholm, Thailand and Brussels as part of the OEBF festival, which demonstrated the interest of authors and readers in this project.
The collection brings together both winners of prestigious national and international literary awards, whose works are published and heard in many countries, translated into many languages, and very young aspiring authors who are making their first steps into big literature.
Traditionally, all submitted works were selected by a leading project specialist, but this year everything has changed for the better! Since 2020, this project is supervised by experts in the field of prose — the ECG “Prose” Expert Council.
We encourage all our Experts of the prose to participate! After all, only members of the “Prose” Expert Council receive a 50% discount on publication in the collection!!!
AND THAT’S NOT ALL! WE DECIDED TO GIVE AWAY AND RAFFLE THREE FREE PUBLICATIONS IN THE COLLECTION!!
How will this work?
Members of The expert Council submit their works → the Executive Committee of the Expert Council reviews (evaluates) the works → selects the best 3 works on a competitive basis, makes a rating of the best works → determines 3 prizes → publication.
