Every Last Biscuit - a new poetry collection by Lytisha Tunbridge - will be published on 22nd November 2017
by Kate Bellis, Sally Matthews, Lucy Peacock, Gavin Repton and Carol Fieldhouse
HILL tells the story of one Derbyshire hill, in poetry, photography, sculpture, film and song.
"For Under Milk Wood, Dylan Thomas had only poetry. To describe the hill behind Wirksworth, Daniel Defoe had only prose. But to capture this hill Kate Bellis, Sally Matthews, Lucy Peacock, Gavin Repton, and Carol Fieldhouse use objects and images as well as words. I've spent happy hours walking (and tortured hours running) on the surface of this hill, but what lies beneath? What came before? What is the whole personality, the history, the identity, the society, the feeling of this place? I dare hope these artists are pioneering a new genre of storytelling." Matthew Parris
A high quality collection of photographs, poems and drawings by Kate Bellis, Lucy Peacock and Sally Matthews, with a DVD featuring Gavin Repton's documentary and Carol Fieldhouse's music. Size: A4, 124pp.
Available to buy online here, or at Scarthin Books, Cromford, Wirksworth Bookshop or Amazon.

A strong and personal collection of poems by Lytisha Tunbridge.
Lytisha Tunbridge really began developing her creative writing in 2012, after curating, exhibiting and performing in a successful art exhibition and event called ‘I’m not an Artist, but I did This…’ at the City Gallery. (Now Five Leaves bookshop).
Since then, Lytisha has been busy writing and performing her poems up and down the country. She also delivers creative writing workshops and curates Spoken Word stages at several festivals, including Exile Festival, Nottingham Green Festival, and at Stuff of Life.
She completed her Creative Writing Masters at Nottingham Trent University in November 2016. Every Last Biscuit is Lytisha’s first published pamphlet.

by Lucy Peacock
Some Very Short Stories About Love is full of stories that are very short. But they may not be about love in the way you'd expect.
Some funny, some sad, some bitter, some light, these are stories for moments here and there; for reading over a cup of tea, or whenever you have the time.
From Amazon reviews:
"A wonderful little book you can dip into whenever you find time to sit down for a few minutes."
"I laughed out loud more than once, I shed a respectable number of manly tears... I read the whole slim volume in two sittings."
Available at The Bookshop, Wirksworth, Scarthin Books, Cromford, and Amazon.co.uk
