This week we are joined by Cherry Potts, author and founder of Arachne Press. Cherry is the author of fantasy novel The Dowry Blade and the short story collection Mosaic of Air. Her work is often inspired by myth and fairy tales, while exploring the politics and humour found in everyday lesbian life. She is also a visiting lecturer at City University teaching creative writing.

Arachne Press was founded in 2012 and has published many YA and poetry titles as well as non-fiction and anthologies, including three collections of stories performed by Liars' League. Arachne Press has also been at the forefront of live storytelling, running The Story Sessions events around London, and the annual midwinter Solstice Shorts festival which is branching out around the UK in December 2017. You can find our more about Cherry and her work on her website www.cherrypotts.co.uk and Arachne Press at www.arachnepress.com where details of upcoming events can also be found.
