Each book is a collection of short stories written exclusively by current student writers, making New Voices the best place to find the most exciting new literary talent. You wont have read anything by any of these authors before, but you might just discover a great new writer before anyone else. In addition, the lions share of the profits from the book go straight to the authors, so you can feel good knowing that your purchase is helping ten severely debt-laden students! This years collection features ten stories, all from current students who have taken time out from their studies to write something for us. The stories cover a wide range of genres and styles, but all deal with themes of alienation, isolation and loss. There are moments of real humour, but these stories also touch on serious and sometimes uncomfortable topics. We hope they will not only entertain you, but give you something to think about as well. What is certain, is that they provide a fascinating insight into the mindset of the next generation of young adults. forget that theyre students and enjoy the maturity and quality of the writing - The Bookbag.
