IMPRINT 20 WAS OFFICIALLY UNVEILED ON 26 FEBRUARY. As we couldn’t celebrate at the FCC, we launched the issue by Zoom.

Masterminded by new committee member Rinkoo Ramchandani and emceed by our president Suzanne Andrews, the occasion was declared an amazing success and enjoyed by members around the globe. Necessity being the mother of invention, WiPS had produced – in short order – its own mix of virtual wizardry!

“What a soul-lifting, inspiring and FUN launch that was! So honoured to be among such a vibrant, lively and talented group of creative women. Suzanne and team. It was a blast!” — Maureen Tai

For those of you whom distance or other engagements made attendance impossible, here is a small taste of what we enjoyed. These will take you to Susan Lavender’s rehearsal of her readings from four members’ prose pieces:

We also include a link to introduce our artist member Pamela Williams ( who gave us not only the stunning illustration for the cover of Imprint 20 but also invaluable help in graphic design. As Pam lives in London, few members will have met her.

We hope this footage will help kindle your own creativity and urge you to be part of issue 21!

The deadline for the submissions is 30 April 2022. If you haven’t begun work on yours, please start now! This is your anthology and we welcome everyone’s contribution. Visit our website for guidelines.

We will hold an Imprint workshop in late March / early April for anyone needing help with her piece. More about this to follow.
