A Coastal Anthology
Connecting Nothing with Something explores the conflicted and shifting landscape of the south east English coast. We look 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, this 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 and many more, including a foreword from Travis Elborough.
