A House of Music & Other Stories is available to buy online from our website:

 

A collection of eighty-word works from published, aspiring and casual writers from around the world, including the award-winning authors Joan Byrne, Sam Palmer, K S Dearsley and Hannah Froggatt.

 

This anthology showcases sparks of imagination from the fantastical to the obscure, celebrating the spice of flash fiction.

 

Sold in support of the homeless, each copy sold online subsidises the printing of 3 copies for the homeless (or homeless organisations) to sell.

 

Pre-order copies have been shipped, please send us your feedback on the book!

 

 

 

 

For when you'd rather exercise the mind:-

 

Some people love running marathons for a cause, but others find their strengths elsewhere. The Third Word Press truly harnesses the power of words, a creative rather than physical exercise, to spread some good.

By collecting 'drabble' - exactly eighty-word pieces of flash fiction - through an online competition, we select the best to be published in anthologies, which are distributed to the homeless of the UK to sell for a small personal income. So, you can get that warm fuzzy feeling of helping out, by only lifting your fingers!

The creative way to fundraise for the homeless and be published!

fortnightly cash prize competition

Enter our Great Eighty Flash Fiction Competition -

this is the journey your submission could take:

Submit: You submit a piece of flash fiction of exactly 80 words of your own work and send it to us by either the second or the fourth Monday of each month, for your chance to win £20 and be published on our website. You can enter as many pieces as you wish; entry is free. If we like it (whether or not you win) we will publish it in one of our mini anthologies. You will be notified (there is no timeframe) by email, if your piece is chosen and be invited to participate in our fundraising initiative.

Promote: If your piece is chosen for publication, you will be invited to join our fundraising initiative: to promote the anthology, in which you are published, across your network, selling as many copies as possible. Copies will be on sale from our website for a month only (or until we have sold 500 copies). We hope that each author sells 10 copies; we feel this is realistic but we challenge you to beat our expectations!

Distribute: Following the online sales fundraising, we will know how many anthologies of each edition can be printed - each anthology sold online, priced at £4, will subsidise the printing of 3 anthologies for the homeless* to sell across the UK. Each of their sales enables another anthology to be printed, allowing us to provide a sustainable initiative.

 

*Should this at any point prove unworkable, the anthologies will instead be donated to homeless charities

Help us build our brand - we are hoping to become a household name, so that when people see the homeless selling Third Word Press mini books, they know where it comes from and how it works.

Share our facebook page, and retweet from our twitter account. Thank you!

To donate, click here and choose from the dropdown menu.

At a glance: This thermometer shows our sales so far, and we send a huge thank you to all those of you who have helped us hit our target! The extra funds will be spent on the next (hopefully, larger) print run in Spring '18.

 

The mini book on sale makes a great present, and will be ready perfectly in time for Christmas, so look no further if you're on the hunt for stocking fillers, Secret Santas or other small but special gifts.
