About us...

Little Red Writers aims to discover, promote and publish local writing talent.

We want to produce quality books our readers will enjoy, and of which we and the authors can be proud.

Our quest begins with the launch of the Dorset Writers' Prize, as we seek out some modern tales worthy of inclusion in a new anthology to be published next year.  

We hope the competition will attract new and exciting stories from a wide spectrum of writers, able to claim Dorset as their home through birth or residency.

Who we are...

Tom Roberts is a former journalist, small press publisher and coffee roaster. He runs the Little Red Roaster coffee house in Poole.

Joanne Barry is a Dorset-based illustrator, musician and project manager... who loves coffee.
