CORNISH SHORT STORIES

We are proud to announce that the book launch for Cornish Short Stories will be held

at The Falmouth Bookseller

on Saturday 19th May at 6.00 pm.


This bold and striking new anthology showcases Cornwall’s finest contemporary writers, combining established and new voices. Ghosts walk in the open and infidelities are conducted in plain sight. Two teenagers walk along a perfect beach in the anticipation of a first kiss. Time stops for nothing—not even for death. Sometimes time cracks, disrupting a fragile equilibrium. The stories are peopled with locals and incomers, sailors and land dwellers; a diver searches the deep for what she has lost, and forbidden lovers meet in secret places. Throughout, the writers’ words reveal a love of the incomparable Cornish landscape.


Book cover design by Vita Sleigh and internal woodcut illustrations by Angela Annesley. The full list of contributors can be found here.
