New book written by recovering addicts launches in Burnham-On-Sea

A new book featuring short stories and poems written by recovering sufferers of addictions has been launched in Burnham-On-Sea this week.

Called Looking In, the book was launched at the town's Princess Theatre on Thursday evening (November 14th) where several of the emotional stories were read to the audience.

The publication is raising funds and awareness for Burnham's Somewhere House, a residential rehabilitation centre for people seeking help with addictions.

The book's editor, Lewis Coleman, who is himself a recovering alcoholic, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Lots of local people with addictions have contributed to this book."

"It's important for people in recovery to tell their story and express their feelings. It helps them to move on and recover."

"The book features 20 pieces - a collection of poems and short stories - that have been written by eight people recovering from addictions."

Angie Clarke, from Somewhere House, said: "I am very proud of everyone who has contributed to this book and thank everyone involved for their support of Somewhere House."

Priced £5.99, the book is on sale at The Princess Theatre and has been published by Blue Sky Theatre and Arts, a non-profit organisation for people in recovery from addiction.
