Sentinel Annual Literature Anthology
POEMS. SHORT STORIES. PLAYS.
Sentinel Annual Literature Anthology (SALA) is a yearly publication of new poetry, short fiction and plays by SPM Publications - the publishing division of Sentinel Poetry Movement.
SALA 2012 was withdrawn just before it went on sale do to some serious editorial issues that we needed to resolve. These issues have now been resolved and we have resumed the process of releasing this book. It has now been firmly scheduled into our programme for the 30th of September 2013.
