With the project gathering pace and loads of material and memorabilia coming in, we plan, together with the Supporters Trust, to publish four books to mark the club’s centenary year. The books will be on the theme of ‘My Swans’ and one of them will be a ‘people’s history’ devoted to the thoughts and memories of fans of all ages. We will include material from the project’s fan survey and also short pieces written by school children from across the region.
We would also like to include mini-essays from fans on why the Swans matter to them. We don’t want more on great goals and games, but we want pieces on the joys, trials, and tribulations of being Swans fan. We want contributions that are quirky, funny, and poignant but above all colourful and interesting.
So this is an invitation to you to write your own little bit of Swans history. Obviously we can’t guarantee to publish everything we receive in the book, but we will put all contributions on the project website so that they will be there for posterity.
There are four practical matters:
1. We have to reserve the right to edit material, although it is our intention for as much as possible to be published as it was written.
2. Pieces can be as short or as long as you like, up to a maximum of 1500 words.
3. The final deadline for submissions is 30 April.
4. Send all contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you, so get scribbling.
