Our Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing call for submissions is underway. As co-editors, Felicity Notley and I are looking for unpublished short stories from new, emerging and existing writers from Cornwall for an anthology to be published by The History Press in 2018 . Find full details on the Cornish Short Stories website. Follow us @CornishShorts and Cornish Shorts on Facebook.
In 2017, I’ll be co-editing a book of Cornish short stories with Felicity Notley. Felicity and I are very excited to have this opportunity to showcase the wonderful literary talent this county has to offer.
Cornish Short Stories: A Collection of Contemporary Cornish Writing will be published by The History Press in May 2018.
From January to March 2017, Felicity Notley is running creative writing sessions at Carnon Downs on Saturday mornings. Details here. I’ll begin to run classes again on Thursday evenings from April 2017. Please contact me if you’d like me to let you know when the classes resume.
I’m very pleased to say I’m volunteering as a mentor for the WoMentoring project. This project offers free mentoring by professional literary women to talented up and coming female writers who would otherwise find it difficult to access similar opportunities.
This month, the Creative Writing Group will meet in the Meeting Room at Carnon Downs Village Hall on 1 and 8 December. From January to March 2017, the sessions will be lead by Felicity Notley. Felicity will also lead the session on 1 December. I’ll resume leading the group again in April 2017. More details here.
