15: Back to basics

By Stella Cardus

15: Back to basics

With its Arts Council funded Write to Publish project, QueenSpark went back to basics.

Write to Publish offered training, guidance and support in how books and web publications are made from inception to finished product, including commission and research, writing, editing and design, sales and distribution.

The project was structured so that participants:
a) got involved in working on QueenSpark publications
b) got help in publishing their own material, or helped others to do the same
c) organised and staged small-scale events that celebrated their involvement in the project.

Two exciting new books edited by Frank Flood (shown here with his daughter Kate) resulted from the project:

'Back Row Brighton' (2010) which transports us back to the heyday of cinema-going in the company of those who were there. Alongside evocative archive photographs, names such as the Astoria, the Granada, the Continentale and the Regency are recalled in touching and humorous stories of romance, excitement, grandeur and, occasionally, fleas.

'Backstage Brighton' (2011) which celebrates theatre and theatre-going in the city past and present. If you ever wondered what once stood on the site of the Brighton Centre or why the Sallis Benney is so-called, then you’ll be enthralled by the book’s fascinating journey through the history and heritage of Brighton & Hove’s many theatrical venues.

As a pair, or individually, they make the perfect present from Brighton & Hove!
