Ranging across the globe from sheep-strewn Welsh hills to an edgy Belgrade, and encompassing themes as diverse as doppelgangers and jellyfish, this anthology is an exploration of human essentials, containing all the humour, poignancy, and awe that being human evokes. Bringing together the twelve winning short stories and the twenty-one winning poems from this year’s Penfro Festival competition as selected by Niall Griffiths and Rhiannon Hooson, Heartland is a celebration of writing and writers.
Niall Griffiths is an award-winning and best-selling author. Carly Holmes is a writer and editor living in west Wales. Rhiannon Hooson is an award-winning poet with numerous publications to her name.
