A Cuppa and an Armchair

A Cuppa and an Armchair is a collaborative venture joining writers and the charity, Equipe, in a bid to raise much-needed funds.

Our aim is to create several books, with one aimed solely at children. Each book shall be available to buy worldwide, as both a paperback and an e-book.

To achieve this, we are asking all writers to come forward and submit their short stories by emailing them to ellieransley@gmail.com Should we accept your submission, you will not be paid for your work, however, credit will be given to you within the book, as well as within the book listings on sites such as Amazon.

But it is not just stories we need. We will need assistance with illustrations, cover designs, proof reading, the list goes on. If you would like to help in this project, please contact us via the Facebook page or email ellieransley@gmail.com

*Equipe is an international charity working into East Africa, India, Papua New Guinea and The Philippines. Its mission is to enable and empower local people to break the cycle of poverty through education, sustainable infrastructure and business.

**At this time we are considering short stories of any genre. Each story cannot be any longer than 2,000 words, and must be free of any offensive language or adult graphic scenes.

    Ellie, it’s very unclear how one should submit stories and to whom. Can they be sent to you?

      Thank you Charlotte for querying this. Yes, submission is to ellieransley@gmail.com. I have updated this page, and written a Q & A, but if you spot anything else, please do let me know. Thanks again.
