Whoosh! is an anthology of work by nine new queer writers based in the South East. Whoosh! appeared during this years Brighton and Hove Pride festival, launched with an evening of readings from anthology contributors and other established queer writers from the region.Whoosh! is the result of a year-long project funded by Awards for All and supported by Brighton and Hove Pride. Queer Writing South, led by rewned queer poets Maria Jastrzebska and John McCullough, ran a ten-week programme of workshops. Open to local writers from the LGBT community, the workshops were held at the Brighton Writers' Centre on Grand Parade. The resulting anthology, a joint publication from Pighog Press in association with Queer Writing South and THE SOUTH, is a fresh, invative and varied mix of new poetry and prose.
