An anthology of Teen writing inspired by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

Celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Franenstein, Fighting Words Belfast has created 'Friends and Monsters' - a cross-community creative writing project for post-primary students, exploring themes of obsesson, grief, revenge and loneliness. The result is this collective book - sometimes dark, often silly, always surprising.    

With stories and poems by young writers from four Belfast schools and the Write Club at Duncairn, this anthology is a rollercoaster ride through the weird, the wonderful, the creepy and the crazy. This is what it looks like when you unleash the hurricane force of teen imaginations into the wild. It can get weird. We can't wait to show you. 

"This is not like any book you have ever read. It will make you belly- laugh, give you goosebumps & tie knots in your brain." - Máire Zepf
