Fairlight Books are one of our favourite small publishers in the UK. They produce startlingly beautiful books, and they are also impressive in their commitment to publishing diverse literary voices.
So we’re absolutely delighted to announce that the new Fairlight Book of Short Stories (Volume 1) contains a story from Wind&Bones’s very own Hannah Stevens. The story, ‘She Picks Up The Cat’ is a short and searing flash fiction piece about domestic violence.
Here’s what Fairlight say about the new anthology:
From flash fiction to mini-novelette, Fairlight presents The Fairlight Book of Short Stories (Volume 1), twenty-four of its best short stories from some of the world’s most talented new and emerging English language writers. Chosen from work sent to Fairlight over several years by writers around the globe, this anthology celebrates the art of the short story form: a vehicle with the power to delight, entertain or instantly transport the reader to another state, another world, another emotion.
Twenty-four stories by twenty-four writers, including various award-winning short story authors, and Women’s Prize-longlisted author Sophie van Llewyn.
