We’re “Making Waves”

An anthology of short stories and poems written by the Scarborough Writers’ Circle

Put together a group of writers and what do you get?


A stalker, a slinky cat, a hermit crab,

a battle, a bird, a bluff,

a talented boy artist,

a boisterous oaf,

a dangerous encounter,


a lighthouse, a parachute,

a predator in the park,

a heart-breaking journey,

the truth about dying,

murderous connections,

men in the sand


a bit of trouble from Lottie Moon.

Come on in… the water’s waiting!

This collection of short stories and poems shows inspiration can come from the most peculiar places.
