Cinnamon Press is the fastest growing small press in Wales, publishing about twenty-five titles a year in fiction, poetry and occasional non-fiction.
Wales has a strong literary tradition and Cinnamon aims to contribute to that by bringing in authors from around the world – Italy, Finland, Sweden, Bosnia, South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, China and the USA to name a few, as well as those from Britain and Ireland, with a strong core of Welsh writers. Cinnamon takes great pride in being independent and innovative, taking risks with high quality unusual projects: the multi-genre two-part memoirs, Three-three, two-two, five-six and Discussing Wittgenstein by Ann Drysdale; the genre-defying epistolary Felicity and Barbara Pym by Harrison Solow; the bi-lingual experimental poetry of Rhys Trimble, Keinc; and I Spy Pinhole Eye, Philip Gross’s poetry in response to Simon Denison’s pinhole photography, which won the 2010 Wales Book of the Year Award. Several titles have won or been shortlisted for major literary awards, including those by debut poets or novelists, many of whom come to Cinnamon through its literary competitions for novelists, poets and short story writers.
