Original tales by remarkable writers

Hometown Tales is a series of books pairing exciting new voices with some of the most talented and important writers at work today. Some of the tales are fiction and some are narrative non-fiction – they are all powerful, fascinating and moving, and aim to celebrate regional diversity and explore the meaning of home.

In these pages on the South East, you’ll find two unique tales: an illuminating account of living in Margate by award-winning BBC broadcaster Gemma Cairney, and one more tale to be found through open submissions.

Read by Rachel Atkins and Nicole Davis
