Geneva Writers’ Group launches new anthology and starts new season.
World Writing from Geneva, Nyon, Gland, neighbouring France and beyond
The thirteenth volume of Offshoots, the biennial literary anthology of the Geneva Writers’ Group, was recently launched at Webster University. With 54 contributors from some 20 countries on six continents, this volume celebrates the rich diversity of human experience. Apart from Geneva, many of the writers live in Nyon, Gland and neighbouring France. This new volume is enriched with full-page black-and-white photographs and contains stories and poems offer a captivating voyage around the world.
Says Editor-in-Chief Caroline Thonger:
“The writing in this volume comes from the global meeting place that is Geneva. From a story set in Darjeeling, another under Kilmanjaro and a third of a wedding in the Vaud region, we are giving our readers a glimpse into the astonishing variety of backgrounds and writing experience of our contributors.”
