Wrecking Ball Press Writers

Wrecking Ball Press will publish 10 original high quality books over the period April 2015 - February 2017.

To include four poetry collections, four novels, a memoir and a monologue, each very different .

These are books that aim to excite audiences but which commercial presses are reluctant to take a risk on. They are all very different from one another but share distinctive outsider qualities. 

Each writer will hold workshops with aspiring local writers in Hull’s libraries to coincide with the launch of their books.

Award: £5,000 per annum over 2 years (annual Audience Development Award)
