Writer Bites 2

It's finally here! Apologies to the writers who have been very patient. I managed to record most of the podcast, but then Cyprus Well moved offices, and Plymouth International Book Festival happened...

Writer Bites 2 features Mama Tokus, Tim King, Clare Reddaway, Sue Ashby, Robert Walton, Victoria Cole, and Carrie Etter. You can find out more about our contributors by clicking here.

Introducing Writer Bites

Cyprus Well is dedicated to giving people access to the best new writing in the region. With this in mind, we are launching Writer Bites, a brand new bimonthly podcast, showcasing some of the fabulous writers the South West has to offer. 

Writer Bites will offer new writers the opportunity to record a short section of their work for inclusion in the Writer Bites podcast. We welcome submissions of poetry, short stories, flash fiction, or an extract of your novel. These will then be included in Writer Bites, featured on this site, and promoted via Cyprus Well’s extensive network. Check our submissions page for more information on sending in your work.
