Organiser Arachne Press

Organiser of Where We Find Ourselves Book launch OnLine

Arachne Press is a micro publisher based in South London, specialising in short story anthologies, but branching out into Young Adult novels and poetry. We love reading our stuff aloud, and decided to help other people do the same, and so we run lots of live events, including The Solstice SHorts Festival, often including music with our stories and poems.
