Is it autumn already?
The Dunlins have been quiet, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t been busy.
Over the summer we accepted submissions for our next book, which will essentially be a collection about wading birds, shore birds – call them what you will – and migration. The book will feature some beautiful illustration from our very own Ella Johnston, as well as a mix of writing – some journalism, some nature and landscape writing, and a handful of poems. And there will be a few surprises too. We’ve got some great writers that we’ll reveal in due course. We’re getting excited about it. Really excited.
The contributors have all been contacted and we’re now scurrying around putting the finishing touches to the extra words that will (loosely) stitch the narrative of the book together. We’ll go to print after Christmas, as we did with Est at the start of this year – and publish in the spring.
In the meantime, we’ll be keeping you up to date with developments, so stay tuned – and follow us on @twitter if you’re feeling social. We’re at @dunlinpress.
By for now!
