The Professor in Children’s Literature gathers and reprints a selection of twenty-six illustrated stories for children originally published in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, offering a brief introduction to each of them. The volume complements the author’s book-length study Picture-Book Professors: Academia and Children’s Literature; both works are open access, available as free downloads. Get your copy of The Professor in Children’s Literature in EPUB or PDF format!
The book launch will take place in the Portrait Room at Grove House, starting at 5.30pm.
This free event will take place in the Portrait Room, Grove House, University of Roehampton, starting at 7pm. It will involve a drinks reception, author readings from both anthologies, and, of course, an opportunity to buy the books. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Also, for your downloading pleasure, there is an A4-size event poster [PDF] available.
This anniversary collection marks a five-year milestone with two innovations – the use of colour illustrations and the inclusion of work by alumni as well as current students from the University of Roehampton’s Creative Writing programme. The anthology, edited by Leone Ross (Come Let Us Sing Anyway), features short stories, flash fiction, creative nonfiction, screenplays, and poetry. Our authors explore dark themes, tender moments and satire with joy and even triumph, as they fight off the dragons that lurk in our world.
Ahead of the cover reveal of our 2018 anthology, check out the launch party we threw back in December for our last title,The Unseen! You can buy The Unseen and our entire catalogue on our website or at The Hive.
There are only two days left until the official launch of The Unseen, but there is still time for you to get involved!
The conversation is happening on Twitter – get talking about your favourite pieces, authors, and your thoughts about the launch using #unseenlaunch. What are you expecting? Will our authors reveal the unseen? Or will it all remain hidden?
If you have already uncovered the secrets within The Unseen, please feel free to share your feelings by giving us a review on Goodreads or Amazon. Share it with us, and the world!
Join us for the launch of The Unseen, the latest in our series of student work! The event starts at 6:30pm on December 6, and will be held in the Portrait Room in Grove House at the University of Roehampton.
The evening will showcase some of the writers featured in the anthology as they read their work and reveal The Unseen. The Dress code for the event is smart-casual, and everyone is welcome. Bring your friends, family and colleagues to this celebration of new writing. We will offer free drinks, and the chance to buy The Unseen and the previous Fincham Press anthologies at a reduced price.
