The Big Switch


Swinton based creative writing group SWit’CH has published a collection of short stories in large print format for readers with a visual impairment like Macular Degeneration or Glaucoma.

‘The Big Switch’ is a compilation of extracts from some of the group’s previously published works.  It is designed for easy reading with a font design developed by RNIB.

Eye-strain can become uncomfortable with extended periods of reading long works like novels so the stories selected are short.

Although the text is large, the book is normal size so it’s easy to handle.  Big letters on clear white pages means it’s a ‘page turner’ in the literal sense.

This initiative is supported by Salford CVS and NHS Salford CCG and the Third Sector Fund Grant.

Visually impaired readers in Salford should ask for copies of the book by contacting SWit’CH by e-mail at

The anthology will be available through Amazon and major book distributors.
