A New Voice: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Rymour Books...

Updated: May 18


The latest SWH! podcast is about all things Rymour Books as Ali talks to founder Ian Spring, and two of their authors Kirsti Wishart and, previous podcast guest, Graham Lironi. Rymour are a new(ish) small independent publisher and Ian tells us all about how they came to be, the ideas behind Rymour, and their publications to date.


Kirsti and Graham then give us the story from a writer's point of view, talking about their new books, The Knitting Station and Fake Flowers respectively, as does Ian who as well being a publisher is also a writer, with his collection of short stories The Stone Mirror out now.



The talk also turns to Rymour's non-fiction titles, how the initial plan soon grew, the unexpected benefit of Lockdown, the connections between these writers books, and what, potentially, denotes a Rymour author. It's an inspirational story which proves that despite all obstacles new publishers are not only emerging, but thriving.
