After months of reading, editing, commissioning, designing and proofing, the final issue of creative writing anthology The Parabola Project will be hitting the shelves at the end of November, showcasing the creative talent on offer in Cornwall and beyond.

Featuring poetry, prose, short stories and novel extracts, The Parabola Project Issue III: Horizons follows in the footsteps of previous issues, with work from across the writing spectrum augmented by some of the UK’s most exciting imagemakers.

Created by Stranger Collective partner Clare Howdle, who has been running not-for-profit writing group Telltales for four years, the first issue of The Parabola Project launched in 2010, with a second issue published a year later. This year’s issue has attracted recognised names on the contemporary literary scene – including nationally renowned poet Luke Wright – to feature alongside some of Cornwall’s rising stars like Lydia Benson and Nick Jarvis.

This year has been the first year The Parabola Project has been brought into the Stranger Collective stable which meant the whole team chipped in. Everyone took a bit of Feeding time to read, edit and proof content; making sure everything was top notch and being inspired by what the creative writing scene has to say for itself at the same time.

Designed by Venn Creative, The Parabola Project Issue III: Horizons also features work from some very talented illustrators, including Stranger favourite Millie Marotta, Edward Tuckwell and Laura Callaghan, with cover artwork by Gareth Fareham.

Sound tasty? Be sure to pick up a copy.

The Parabola Project Issue III: Horizons is available online at and from independent stockists from 27 November.

It costs just £5 and every penny made goes back into the pot, to continue motivating, showcasing and inspiring the creative writing scene in Cornwall and beyond.
