Tuesday, 2. Oct 2018 - 50 camels and she’s yours


Our travel writing group, Stephanie Green, Sally Haiselden, Francoise Hivernel, Seeta Siriwarena, Jane Wilson-Howarth, will present their latest book, "50 camels and she’s yours", a collaborative project.

This anthology is aimed at travellers of all styles: arm-chair, wishful thinkers and adventurers alike. It is particularly aimed at women who think , ‘Oh, I wish I could do that!’ Come with us and be in spired by the extra ordinary journeys of five ordinary women: two medical doctors, a teacher, an accountant and a psychoanalyst as they travel the five continents.

Freedom - Short Story Competition 2018


This year’s short story competition was a considerable success. Beverley Steffert, our Programme Secretary, arranged for it to be judged by the well-known literary agent Julian Friedmann. In his comments he remarked on the generally high standard of entries. He felt Cambridge Writers would be able to outclass any other writing group in the country. High praise indeed! On the basis of this we have now been able to publish all the entries.
The competition theme was ‘Freedom’, and entrants came at this theme in a multitude of different ways. The collection has been edited by our secretary, Siobhan Carew, and our Website Administrator, Thure Etzold. We owe them a big vote of thanks. The book is now available from Amazon as e-book or paperback.

Forgive me for bragging but I’m cock a hoop because I’ve just published my first novel, “Worlds Apart”. It’s a historical story of friendship set in Scotland at the time of the women’s suffrage movement and WW1.
