Parthian is proud to introduce four debuts from rising literary stars.
It’s September, which means Parthian are publishing four fantastic books by up-and-coming new writers. These books, by Susie Wild (YES, that would be ME!), Tyler Keevil, JP Smythe and Wil Gritten are being celebrated with readings and general merriment across Wales and in London. Tyler and James  both had their books reviewed in the current print edition of Buzz. Wil wrote a short piece for the books page too. My debut collection of short stories, The Art of Contraception will be reviewed in next month’s magazine. We’ll be reading and chatting and drinking at our many launches though. Come along. Here are the dates for your diaries…
