Suffolk Arboretum: An anthology of original stories inspired by remarkable trees and woodland. With a foreword by Tom Brown CEO of The Green Light Trust. This new collection of stories showcases the work of postgraduates studying on the MA in Creative and Critical Writing at the University of Suffolk. Included in the anthology are the winning stories from
the Student New Angle Prize Writing Awards 2022, a competition which runs alongside the prestigious New Angle Prize for Literature to evoke the spirit of East Anglia.


Detailed Description

The writers in this anthology have chosen a tree or woodland area in the
ancient and beautiful county of Suffolk and responded to our green canopies with original stories. From willows to ancient oaks and yew trees that gather memories in their dark shade, to hawthorn trees where country mischief resides, these stories will entertain and delight any reader. It is possible to find the site of every tree mentioned in the anthology and we suggest you explore the county of Suffolk with book in hand. This richly entertaining and carefully crafted anthology of stories show us the importance of the natural world in the ways in which we live, love, and make sense of our lives.

“Trees and woodlands are a quintessential part of what makes Suffolk, Suffolk. Even our county flower the Oxlip is a graceful woodland dweller. Suffolk quite literally has an abundance of nature; I believe it is one of the county's greatest
untapped assets.” Tom Brown, The Green Light Trust.
