In 2018, the Wild Strings festival team and The Future Blend Project organised a jazz & pop harp composition competition alongside the Wild Strings UKHA Jazz & Pop Harp Festival. Four winning compositions have been published in this book, together with eleven pieces contributed by Wild Strings artists (those performing and teaching at the festival, competition adjudicators, etc.). The book was published by PoppyHarp and released at the Wild Strings festival in Manchester in October 2018. The festival was initiated by the UK Harp Association and organised by the Wild Strings festival team.
