Connecting Nothing with Something

 

cnws-frontcover-finalInflux Press

 

Connecting Nothing with Something explores the conflicted and shifting landscape of the south east English coast. This anthology looks at art led regeneration, hidden history, the ghosts of youth culture, white cliffs, empty holidays and kisses under the pier. 

Through fiction, poetry and illustration, the collection shines a light on life at the periphery of an island nation.

Featuring, Salena Godden, Iain Aitch, Katrina Naomi, Dan Cockrill, Rowena Macdonald, Chimene Suleyman, Owen Booth and many more, including a foreword from Travis Elborough.

“Influx Press have the courage to pursue the narrower focus, the beam of light shone on a single area that lights up everything. They care about place, they care about writing, they care about writers, they care about books – I mean, really, what’s not to love?”
Simon Spanton– Associate Publisher, Gollancz.
