The King Edward VI High School for Girls Quill Club has released its second anthology, with the publication raising funds for older people’s healthcare charity Kissing it Better.
Comprising short stories, poems and illustrations, the anthology aims to celebrate and encourage the power of creativity in bringing people together. It centres around three themes – “this is a tragedy of your own making”, dreams and journeys.
Money raised through donations from those who access the anthology online is supporting Kissing it Better, which runs healthcare projects to enhance the lives of older people in hospitals, care homes and the community. The charity was selected after one of Quill’s members saw the positive impact it was having on the lives of older people through time spent as a volunteer, including the importance of creative pursuits in people’s experiences and memories, aligning with the value placed on creativity in Quill and the wider KEHS community.
The anthology is available as a free e-book so it can be accessed anywhere at any time.
