Off Track

Anthology from The Writer’s Playground

Off Track: Anthology from The Writer's Playground

From an eerie green mist filling the rail car, to the rickety rails of India. From misunderstandings about other passengers, to disagreements between red riding hood and her lover. From long journeys, to quick deaths. If you find yourself riding the Tube on the way to work, or facing a longer journey seated next to strangers while the scenery flashes past, pick up this collection of short stories and get lost in train-infused tales.

This anthology is for those who have, will, and want to travel by train. This collection hosts a little of everything: fantasy, science fiction, romance, contemporary. Climb aboard and enjoy literary morsels full of adventure, intrigue, and, most of all, trains.

Writing isn’t always easy, and there are some things we could all do with to help us along the way: accountability, motivation, support, and friendship. The Writer’s Playground, from Urban Writers’ Retreat, is an online home for writers that provides just that.

This anthology comes from a group of writers who spend their writing time in the playground, encouraging each other and generally procrastinating their work in a supportive way. But, as is obvious by this book in your hands, they also sit in the chair and get words on the page.

All proceeds go to charity, the Ministry of Stories.


Edited by Amie McCracken. Stories by Julie Archer, Janet M Baird, Charlotta Buxton, Betty Gabriel, Charlie Haynes, Sarah Jeffery, Stephen Parks, and Shanthi Sam.
