What links lost souls in London to misfits in down town America, political prisoners to hitmen, talking trees to spectres with a sense of humour?
The answer - they all feature in A Strawberry in Winter, the first anthology produced by the Inkerman Writers.
The Inkerman Writers are members of creative writing courses staged at Darlington Arts Centre, in Darlington, County Durham.
They came together six years ago and have developed their writing since then. A number of them have
enjoyed success in short story competitions and have had work published.
