Writer, researcher and non-fiction specialist, Dr Tamsin Spargo.

As part of our Guest Speaker series and in the context of the Collaborative Project module for our 3rd years, we've invited Dr Tamsin Spargo, a Cornish writer, researcher and specialist in retelling non-fiction stories to share her knowledge and expertise with us.

As a Cornish writer and cultural historian, Dr Spargo has written about history, nonconformity, religion and sexuality. Her novel Wanted Man (Bloomsbury, 2005) is a surprisingly moving account of anti-hero and real-life train robber, Oliver Curtis Perry, as he became the United State's most wanted man in the late 1800s.

  Until the Day Break  was a series of story walks which took place and were inspired by St Euny’s Church churchyard in Redruth
