New anthology A Can of Words was launched on Saturday at Barnstaple Library.

The newly published work is a collaboration by the Six Scribblers, six members of Braunton Writers’ Group. It contains a mix of genres, including humour, crime, nature, romance and sci-fi.

It consists of 63 stories and poems, all were penned by authors Joan Ainsworth, Janet Bale, Trish Clarke, Diana Heffer, Sheila Ikin and Ro Madgett, who were taken aback by the enthusiasm and support they received.

The launch was attended by friends, including U3A members and Petroc creative writing students.

There will be a second presentation of A Can of Words on November 17 at 1.30pm at Barnstaple Library.

The Six Scribblers would like to thank all those who attended the launch for their help in making it such a success.

The book can be brought from local outlets and from Amazon, and retails at £7.99.
