A sparkling collection of fiction, nonfiction and poetry allowing ten writers plenty of space to show their stuff.
     —Andrew Merton, journalist and poet, Durham

The concept behind this anthology is a veritable GPS of the imagination. It inverts the go-broad, free-range sense of a typical anthology, finding the expansive in a small area. Offering this on an annual basis is also a very fine idea, suggesting that one geographic area can be returned to repeatedly to mine its creativity.
     —Alexandria Peary, author, New Hampshire Poet Laureate, Londonderry

Impressive and highly recommended.
     —Brendan DuBois, New York Times bestselling author, Exeter

How wonderful to see new work by writers I was familiar with, and to find others who suddenly feel like old friends by way of the landscape, both literal and emotional. These stories and poems take us on that search through an array of unforgettable, compelling episodes. I couldn’t put it down.
     —Ann Joslin Williams, Director MFA in Writing, UNH, Durham

Impressive writing chops gathered into an exceptional collection. Don’t miss it!
     —Bill Paarlberg, editor and artist, Kittery Point

The seacoast is home to so many talented writers, an annual anthology would be a wonderful way to get to know them all.
     —Jennifer Richmond, Ceres Baker, South Berwick

Ten Piscataqua Writers does kaleidoscope right. Style, subject, and emo- tional range is exciting and inviting, but each of the writers has the gift of enough pages to be fully accessible. Rather than ten little windows opened and slammed shut, the reader discovers the beautiful play of this year’s literary shape and color.
     —Maren C. Tirabassi, author, former Portsmouth Poet Laureate, Portsmouth

Not a clunker in the bunch!
     —Andrew Periale, editor Puppetry International magazine, Strafford

This volume is rich and diverse in its content and craft. I loved reading it because of the surprise element—not knowing what was around the corner. The anthology strikes a perfect balance between poetry and prose as well as interior and exterior landscapes.
     —Sarah Anderson, author, co-founder of The Word Barn, Exeter

This is a project that deserves revisiting, if only to preserve the voices and stories of the lives in our region.
     —Jan Waldron, artist and author, Rye

Writers like to hide out, so they really do need to be discovered. A yearly anthology is a wonderful place to begin.
     —Mimi White, award-winning poet, Rye

I know and love the Seacoast more deeply thanks to this collection.
     —Denise J. Wheeler, writer, educator, activist, arts maven, Greenland

I loved the choices of works for this book. The poetry too. A beautiful compilation.
     —Laura Stutz, painter, cook, baker, South Berwick

Ten Piscataqua Writers is a very impressive and varied collection, the best selection of local writing I’ve seen gathered in one place. I feel a sense of pride to see their high quality work in print, and the whole book makes me proud to be from the Seacoast.
     —Roland Goodbody, actor, writer, director, Portsmouth (& UK)

I have lived closely with all the stories, essays and poems, traveled through eras and locations. The book has broadened my tastes.
     —Pat Spalding, writer & storyteller, Rye (& Harrisville)

There’s something special about giving anthology writers room to breath, and that’s exactly what happens in this unique collection.
     —Dan Szczesny, journalist, author of  The White Mountain, Manchester

Ten Piscataqua Writers takes a unique approach to showcasing regional talent by bringing together a collection that spans genres, styles, and themes. This is an anthology that celebrates a vibrant writing community and introduces readers to significant new voices and new work.
     —Katherine Towler, author of  The Penny Poet of Portsmouth, Portsmouth
