To launch our 2020 list we are thrilled to welcome Lucy Newlyn to Maytree with the release of her intriguing collection, The Marriage Hearse.
Lucy’s pamphlet will be available towards the end of January 2020 – please check back for more details next year.
We are also delighted to welcome artist Wil Rowlands who has generously provided the wonderful cover art for Lucy’s pamphlet. We’ve long been fans of Wil’s work and we’re absolutely made up that he’s agreed to work with the press.
