Happy Christmas from Gatehouse!

Gatehouse Press are now shutting down for the holidays and we will return the first week of Jan. We will still be picking up orders and will post out whenever the post office is open.

However, before we expertly pack our suitcases with toothbrushes and surreptitious yew trees, we have the Lighthouse Issue #7 submissions to go through. It’s shaping up to be a great issue, with an extract in the features section from Dan Richards’ book, Climbing Days, a peripatetic biography he is writing of his great-great-aunt, Dorothy Pilley, a prominent and pioneering mountaineer of the early 20th Century, and due to published by Faber in 2015. We will also have features from Moniza Alvi and Hope Wolf. It’s due to land late Jan, early Feb.

2015 will see the start of our Prose pamphlet series, with the selected stories from the New Fictions Prize, plus some poetry pamphlets, and a very special project that we can’t mention yet. *Teaser*

Thank you for your support and interest in Gatehouse Press and Lighthouse Literary Journal, we continue to reinvest all money in new titles and run as a non-profit outfit.

I’d also like to thank all those who have contributed and volunteered their time and effort to Gatehouse and our titles this year:

Julia Webb, Meirion Jordan, Philip Langeskov, Angus Sinclair, Laura Elliott, Anna de Vaul, Iain Robinson, Scott Dahlie, Jo Surzyn, Zoe Kingsley, Eliza Robertson, Sam Ruddock, Ian Nettleton, Claire Hynes, Marcus at STEW Andrea Porter, Andrea Holland, Kiran Millwood-Hargrave, Sarah Law, Edwin Kelly, Natty Peterkin, Vicki Johnson, Gini Hanbury, Norwich Designers, Ian Buck, the MALT team and of course, Tom Corbett – who set up Gatehouse in 2006 and passed on something special to us.

Merry Xmas everybody,

Andrew McDonnell
