MEDIA REVIEWS
"Original Skin is the ray of hope ethnic minority writers have been looking for. The talent base is diverse and story lines span the readability spectrum from vividly exciting dramas to poignant pillow tales. Cutting across cultural content and concept in making a bold statement about the imbalance in the publishing industry and the challenges non-white writers face in having their work published. The issues explored in these ten stories are readily identified. Expertly packaged and presented, they will have you racing through the pages. Original Skin is a bold and credible effort which has exposed us to a substantial talent pool whose works will be rolling off the shelves in the coming years." Andrew Clunis. Editor, The Voice Newspaper "There's a desperate need in our modern British society to reflect and provide a platform to talent from all parts of British society. And yet the overwhelming evidence still points to the fact that literature remains an elitist profession. I welcome this brilliant initiative to develop and push new talented writers that may otherwise have been ignored by the profession. There is a huge wealth of stories from BME authors that should be out there in the public consciousness and I'm glad this project goes some way to enable that." Sunny Hundal. Editor, Asians in the Media"
