Between These Shores

Literary and Arts Annual

'Between These Shores Books' (BTS) was created in 2007, though its roots reach back to 2001, when it was a live performance pairing poetry and Archaeology. BTS was mainly created to give talented new writers a better chance to have their work recognised and published and began by publishing their limited edition books.  BTS uses many forms of promotion for their writers, and live performance is used whenever possible through such established groups as 'The Arts Soiree' in New York, as well as networking with other publications, such as 'Gold Dust Magazine'.


The idea for 'Between These Shores Literary & Arts Annual' had been evolving for several years when finally, their first call for submissions posted in 2016. With its publication, BTSABooks will be able to glean possible new authors through their submissions to us. Those who prove to have a good chance of taking their work further may be offered book publication. There is no limit to how often one may submit, so there is always a chance to have one's work included in the annual. 


The annual is based loosely on the annuals of Charles Dickens, such as 'All The Year Round', most especially, his winter/Christmas themed issues.  In keeping with Dickens' use of relating traditional winter ghost stories, BTSA accepts both standard stories and poems and supernatural stories and poems, as well as Creative Non-Fiction. As was the case with Dickens' books, readers will be able to acquaint themselves with the BTSA Creative Team, by reading and seeing their own work in its pages, as well. BTSA aims to merge the literary and graphic arts, while promoting the belief that all arts are intrinsically necessary and connected. 

Between These Shores Annual has quickly become a literary stage for emerging, as well as established writers. BTS Books has never accepted manuscripts but, potential authors have always been chosen personally through trusted referrals, observation of performance and readings, or first-hand knowledge of a writer's ability. Between These Shores Annual is now the best way to have one's work chosen for the annual, as well as book publication. 


All of our authors are personally chosen.

Creepies, crawlies, hairy things...things that go bump and crunch in the night...that’s the stuff that makes the poetry of James Michael Shoberg at once compelling and a bit uncomfortable. But not to worry. Even in the dank dark words there is a sense of whimsy that leaves you disarmed, and serves to make the reader relax and realize...sticks and stones may break my bones, but words....

A master at cadence and rhyme, his words evoke the anxiety most of us feel when confronted with things that make us squirm. His imagery and imagination take us outside the box...including in the realm of “creepy” such things as computers, dogs, and even Santa. In the end, however, the poems are thoroughly enjoyable, and well worth the read. If you like to take a walk on the dark side, these poems are for you!
