This New North. Anthology Book Launch from the Northern Short Story Festival

We’re delighted to be launching This New North at Leeds Lit Fest on Wednesday 3 March 2021. Our new anthology showcases the range of writing talent in the North of England. 12 of the writers featured in this anthology are graduates of our Northern Short Story Festival Academy programme which has helped to develop the voices of brand-new short story writers based in the region, alongside stories by Litro fiction editor Barney Walsh, author Anna Chilvers and author and critic Richard Smyth. This New North is edited by SJ Bradley and Anna Chilvers and published by Valley Press.

You can pre-order copies direct from publisher Valley Press.

This Anthology is supported by arts@Leeds, part of Leeds City Council and The Walter Swan Trust.
