A New Anthology Now Crowdfunding on Unbound

An anthology of short stories in aid of Grenfell Tower and Trauma Response Network.
On the night of 14th June 2017, a fire engulfed the 24-storey Grenfell Tower in west London, killing at least 87 people and injuring many more. An entire community was destroyed.
For many people affected by this tragedy, the psychological scars may never heal.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a condition that affects many people who have endured traumatic events, leaving them unable to move on from life-changing tragedies.
In the immediate aftermath of the fire, the focus was rightly placed on providing food, shelter and health care for those left homeless – but it is important that we don’t lose sight of the psychological impact this fire will have had on its survivors.
Twenty4Stories is an anthology of short stories, written on themes of community and hope, positive stories written by a mix of established authors such as Irvine Welsh, Christopher Brookmyre and Nina Stibbe and previously unpublished writers.
