In Dark Places 

A book published by our students, in partnership
with Booker Longlister Wyl Menmuir & the National Trust

Falmouth University’s School of Writing and Journalism is excited to launch a new collaborative publishing project in partnership with The National Trust. Guided by industry professionals, students from the school will design, publish and market a specially commissioned book by author Wyl Menmuir

This is an exceptional chance for students to gain experience of all parts of the publishing process. Wyl, whose novel The Many was longlisted for the 2016 Man Booker Prize, will be writing in response to the landscapes found in National Trust properties.

The finished book will be launched at the South West Outdoor Festival in September. 


Wyl Menmuir lives in Cornwall and works as a novelist and editor. His bestselling debut novel, 'The Many' (Salt) was long-listed for the 2016 Man Booker Prize. His limited edition chapbook story 'Rounds' was published in November 2016 by Nightjar Press.

National Trust Books publish over 50 new books every year in support of the National Trust's conservation work. Titles released in 2017 include 'The National Trust Book of Scones', and 'Taxidermy in the Country House'.
