Electrik: A Unique Writers’ Collective, Bath Life: Issue 211, 15-29th June

A group of children’s writers, all with an MA in creative writing from Bath Spa University, have joined forces  to create what appears to be a movement that’s been taking the publishing industry by storm: a writers’ collective.

Named Electrik Inc., these writers are working together to independently publish their books at a professional standard. Author co-operatives are a recent establishment within self-publishing and Electrik is unique in its position as a children’s writing-only organisation.

The first title to launch from Electrik is Kim Donovan’s St Viper’s School for Super Villains. Described as The Incredibles gone bad and aimed at seven to nine-year-olds, it will officially launch at Topping in Bath on 15th June. The book will be stocked in all Bath bookshops as well as online and available as an eb0ok too.
