Dogs Inspire Budding Writers in Ely

Dogs can change our lives. Nobody knows this better than the folks at the K9 Community Café in Ely.

This social project is dedicated to bringing together people and dogs over tea and treats (who doesn’t enjoy a good biscuit!), and then watching as special friendships form. 

Coinciding with this year’s World Book Day on Thursday 5th of March, the K9 Café is launching a book entitled “K9 Connections”. It features some of the winning entries to their writing competition held last October.

In this collection of uplifting, fun, and at times, poignant short stories, poems and photographs, they invite us into the everyday magic that happens at the K9 Café. 

The book will be available to purchase at the K9 Community Café, located at the Ely Cathedral Conference Centre on Palace Green, held each Thursday from 10am to 12pm. It will also become available via online retailers.

The book will be priced at £9.99 when purchased from the café itself, with all proceeds going towards supporting the project.

“The lovely thing about reading the poems and stories from the K9 writing competition was to know how much pets mean to different people in so many ways and how essential they are to our wellbeing. The work of the K9 Cafe is all about this and it has been my pleasure to support its work.” Michael Rouse, Mayor of Ely, author and historian.
