A new book called ‘Perspectives’ written by some of Suffolk’s up and coming writers has been launched.

Filled with a wide range of poetry and short stories, the anthology has been produced by One.

It’s made up of pieces that have been produced by One students over a number of years and can be purchased for £5.00 – with all profits being handed over to St Elizabeth Hospice.

The idea was formed by principal, Jenny Milsom, who worked with English and creative writing teachers to help create the finished product.

The book is also filled with photos that were taken by former teacher Gordon Haws – who sadly passed away in 2017.

Pete said, “Creative writing has always been an important part of English at One and we have had the privilege of working with some amazingly talented students.

“We are really pleased to have the opportunity to include a good selection of their stories and poetry, including several poems which have won awards in important local competitions. Some of the work is specific to Suffolk, and overall there’s a real mix of voices, genres and subject matter.  We really hope that people will enjoy reading it and would like to thank everyone who has contributed into making this project a reality.”

Phoebe Sizer is a former student who works for the college as an invigilator and has a story in the book. She said, “It feels special to be a published author.”

Principal, Jenny Milsom said, “We are really excited to showcase our students’ work and we are delighted that their efforts are set to raise some money for St Elizabeth Hospice.

“It (St Elizabeth Hospice) is a local charity that is just down the road from us and we are really proud to be able to support it. We think it’s a really good read that helps showcase some of the amazing creative talent that we have here at One and we are delighted that we can share this with the general public.”
