Lymington Anthology

The stories published in the Lymington Anthology come from two sources.

First, the Lymington Writers, who used to meet regularly in the Community Centre, wanted to publish a selection of their own work. Second, we created the Lymington Competition which, in 2019, produced an excellent shortlist of flash fiction and longer stories. All the shortlisted pieces are included in the Anthology. We were particularly pleased to see the submissions in the Under-18 category.


In these 147 pages there are stories to delight and entertain all tastes. You will find fantasy and horror, humour, and a Christmas story. The enthusiasm for creation of character and plot is obvious in every contribution. The writing will not fail to entertain.


The Competition attracted short stories and flash fiction from across the UK. The theme in both sections was Community


We enjoyed the high standard of work received for this, our first writing competition, which certainly bodes well for the future of our craft. The shortlisted entries included here cover a wide range of genres and are full of intriguing characters.

The Lymington Anthology is produced in support of Lymington Community Association, and its Appeal to fund the renovation and upgrading of the Community Centre. To buy your copy Contact Us here or email to
