Sutton Writing Group Compilation



Sutton Writing Group

Starting in 2016, the Sutton Writing Group began publishing annual themed compilation works. These were released during each holiday season. The Sutton Writing Group supports local charity projects. Each compilation features non-fiction essays, short stories, poetries, and artwork contributed by Sutton Writing Group members. We then sell these books online and in local stores. It becomes a way to help spread interest in our styles to a larger audience.

Massachusetts Calling 2016 - Massachusetts Calling
Our compilation for 2016 was "Massachusetts Calling" - it had a theme of Massachusetts. There were a variety of takes on this, from a spooky story set at Spider's Gate Cemetery in Leicester to an essay describing what it was like to grow up in Worcester in the 1960s. There were historical tales of Native Americans and beautiful poems.

In 2016 we supported local food banks and battered women's shelters.

A note about the Sutton Writing Group's charity status:

The state of Massachusetts requires all sorts of fees and filing for a group to say that "we donate proceeds of this project to a charity." So we are not able to say that. Please know that we do support local charities and we feel strongly that a community should take care of those less fortunate.
