With Xlibris, Kimbra Eberly is thrilled to have the spotlight shine on a compelling range of pieces that grew out of The Writer’s Bloc, a meetup group she founded in February 2023 at Hub17. There, writers gathered in a dynamic space to work, exchange ideas, and enhance their writing skills. Poets, scriptwriters, and storytellers – all were welcomed. Soon it became clear to her they shared a common objective: to overcome creative slowdowns and just do the work.
Kimbra then decided to set an ambitious collective goal. She informed the group that they were going to publish a book so their works could be seen by a wider audience. This anthology, with grant support and determination, came together after months of work and refinement. The collection features short stories, poems, memoirs, and scripts from the scribes of The Writer’s Bloc – ranging from emerging writers to established, award-winning authors. The stories are powerful and diverse. They explore love, joy, heartbreak, history, culture, psychology, and horror. All are captivating.
This collection includes twenty-four pieces by eleven writers, with original artwork throughout.
Kimbra is proud to present this first volume on behalf of The Writer’s Bloc.
