In the Fall of 2016, The Ginger Press published Ascribe Writers’ first collection of writing entitled Beneath the Surface: A Collection of Grey-Bruce Stories.
Seana’s story, “Flying with Dragons“, is a dystopian fantasy, inspired by the rocky cliff faces in Beaver Valley.
This book features 14 stories from nine local contributors; all stories varying in different writing styles, genres and topics, as well as several time periods (historical, contemporary and futuristic). In addition to the short stories, the collection includes a foreward by Andrew Armitage, a local author, historian and former librarian who believes in preserving stories about the Grey-Bruce area that would be lost to us, if we didn’t write them down and share with others.
If you would like to support the contributors of this anthology, you can contact the individual author, or you can order books via The Ginger Press Bookstore and Café, 848 Second Avenue East, Owen Sound, Ontario (519) 376-4233

One of the inspirations was a visit to the Keady market and observing the live animal auction. I began to imagine a dragon auction and what it would be like, who would come to such an …
Exploring the House of Eternal Return
I recently got lost in the House of Eternal Return. I should not have been surprised. After all, when I opened the refrigerator, instead of shelves with packaged food was a dark narrow hallway. I bent my head and stepped into the fridge (a weird experience itself). And then, most alarming was that I eventually ended up in …
Second Book Syndrome
I’ve been struggling with the second novel of my planned trilogy. I have all the words but it doesn’t feel like it holds together and I have no idea when or how to end it. My two main characters split up and I don’t know how to structurally deal with that. I try to console myself that …
