All Shall Be Well Anthology | Out May 2012

all shall be well, Sarah Jackman, contributor“Great to have my story selected for ‘All Shall Be Well’ – an anthology celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Welsh Women’s Press, Honno. Congratulations to Honno for their amazing achievement and here’s to another 25 years!”

Sarah is attending the Launch Party @ The Hay Festival on 4 June 2012

All Shall Be Well, Honno’s 25th anniversary anthology, brings together a wonderful and absorbing collection of writing by Welsh women taken from the fiction and non-fiction anthologies published by the press over the last quarter of a century.

Fiction writers such as Patricia Duncker, Sian James, Sarah Jackman and Jo Mazelis contribute tales of tangled relationships, discovery loss and love, told with wit and compassion, while non fiction ranges from the horror of Belsen through the eyes of a Welsh nurse, to the swinging sixties with Molly Parkin.

Since it was formed, Honno has published anthologies on subjects such as motherhood, travel, change and wicked women. The result is a thrilling range of work from new and, by now, established writers.

Speaking of the 25 pieces chosen for the anthology, editors Penny Thomas and Stephanie Tillotson said: “All the pieces here are characterised by skill, be that a skill in story-telling, or dexterity in language, rhetorical or aesthetic, a talent for drawing the reader into an experience, or an ability to create a sense of time or place.”
