Potters 'Arf 2016
Our first 'event' publication, to capture and celebrate one of Stoke on Trent's most iconic sporting events!
The book has stories from every perspective of the race - runners, spectators, sponsors, organisers, charities, volunteers, marshals, photographers - and we've just published them in a little volume to raise funds for the main charities of the race (local charities Dougie Mac and Donna Louise Trust) plus Cox Bank Publishing's 2016 charity of the year the Sir Stanley Matthews Coaching Foundation.
We've had lots of great stories (and poems!) which you can read via the link below - or even better, buy the book! We'll be at some of the larger local (to Stoke-on-Trent) races, events and club nights - email us if you'd like to bulk order for your club.
As part of the project we arranged for renowned West Midlands poet Spoz to spend the day at the race and do a bit of poetry stuff. He did us proud - see his poem here and check out the other six he penned on the day in the full collection of stories.
If you have a story or images of the Potters 'Arf you'd like to contribute to the 2017 book - yes, we're doing it all over again - then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
